Becoming an EACH Trustee

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) supports families and cares for children and young people with life threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. 

With a reputation for excellence and innovation, our family centred approach includes specialist nursing care, symptom management support, short breaks, wellbeing activities, therapies and counselling.  Our Hospices aren’t just about end of life care; they’re often happy and fun places focussed on creating memories and helping and supporting families to make the most of their precious time together. 

We rely on voluntary donations for the majority of our income and in addition to fundraising activity to provide for the on-going costs of our service provision, we are also working hard on the capital appeal project to fund the building of a new hospice in Norfolk. It’s a great time to come and join us!

We are looking for Trustees to broaden our representation of skills and seek applications from individuals who have a strong strategic focus and an understanding of organisational governance.  We would welcome all applications, but have particular interest in those with a legal or clinical  background.

The current Trustee body is an established group who bring a high level of commitment and passion and attend both board meetings and committee meetings regularly.

The role is unpaid, although expenses can be reimbursed. To apply, please email your CV and a short statement on why you want to join EACH to: hannah.burling@each.org.uk. If you would like further information and/or would prefer to speak with our Chief Executive or Chairman before applying, please just let Hannah know

  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
