We’re looking for new Trustees!

Jessie May is a Bristol based charity that provides a children’s palliative care nursing service to support children with life limiting conditions and their families in their own homes across the South West.

Our dedicated nursing staff provide vital respite care, emotional support and social opportunities for children throughout their life, as well as intensive support at the end of life and bereavement support for the family after a child has died.

We are embarking on a new ambitious strategy to both develop our services further and to share our experience and learning more widely, to enable more families to benefit from support at home.

We are now aiming to reinforce our Board by recruiting additional trustees to help lead us as we deliver on our commitments. We are focusing on finding people with the following skills and experience:

  • Commercial and business acumen and experience
  • Marketing, Communications and PR
  • Information Technology and Digital systems
  • Fundraising
  • Finance & Accounting

Time commitment

On average, it is estimated that the role will require 5 hours per month. Following induction, Trustees will be expected each year to attend four Board meetings, four sub committee meetings and a Board strategy day.

Attendance at Fundraising events is also very welcome and much appreciated by sponsors and staff alike.
