Hope supports young people when a loved one is seriously ill, offering one-to-ones, activities and youth sessions in the county. The team also runs the successful Hope at St Michael’s project, offering tailored support to young family members of patients accessing the Hospice.
As well as the service in Herefordshire, Hope also offers a national digital service after responding to demand from families across the UK.
Current Chair Sue Trevethan, who is also the charity’s Founder, has served her full term in office so a new passionate, talented individual is needed to take the reins.
“The new Chair will join us at a hugely exciting time in our proud history as we see our long held plans come to fruition, and launch our own mobile app to support our digital service,” says Sue.
“We are looking for a Chair of Trustees to lead our charity on the next step of the journey, with the skills, knowledge and expertise to drive the organisation forward!”
Hope has enjoyed many successes over the past few years, including being awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service and the Weston Charity Award.
Most recently, the charity has responded to the Covid-19 pandemic – supporting young people who are unable to see their ill family members, and others who have sadly watched their loved ones die of Coronavirus.
