Our Trustees (who are also directors of the company) act as a corporate entity through the Board of Trustees, which meets six times in each year. Additional meetings may be called from time to time to deal with specific issues. The Board oversees all strategic, tactical, and governance aspects of the Hospice's operation and future direction and delegates most of its functions to five committees, each with their own clearly defined terms of reference. Katharine House Hospice is very fortunate to have a Board Of Trustees who offer invaluable guidance on a voluntary basis. Our trustees have a wealth of experience in care and the business sector.
