The work of Northern Ireland Hospice is governed by our Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees comprises of ten members who meet every two months and are responsible for the strategic direction and policy of the charity. Elected members of the Board of Trustees are elected by the membership to serve for a specific period, following which they must be re-elected at the next Annual General Meeting.
A scheme of delegation is in place and day to day responsibility of the services in line with approved plans and budgets rests with the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), supported by the other members of the senior management team.
A corporate governance framework exists, consisting of a central corporate governance committee chaired by the CEO, supported by six sub-committees, including the Finance sub-committee chaired by the Treasurer. Trustees participate in the sub-committees, which meet regularly to ensure that operational policies, procedures and systems incorporate sound management and financial controls in keeping with current best practice.
