Who we are
Heart of Kent Hospice, established in 1991, provides compassionate end-of-life care for people facing the challenge of terminal illness. We care for over 1,700 patients and their families a year who live in Maidstone, Aylesford, Tonbridge, Malling and the surrounding areas. All our services are local and free and are offered to everyone who needs them.
Our services cost £4million a year to run and we depend heavily on our loyal supporters, whose generous donations and fundraising activity account for £4 out of every £5 spent on our services.
The Hospice has built an excellent reputation within the local community for the quality of our care, which has been further endorsed by the Care Quality Commission who awarded us with an overall rating of ‘Outstanding’ following an inspection in February 2017.
The Hospice would welcome interest from candidates with sound business, management and strategic skills who would like the opportunity to contribute their skills to a local independent charity. At this time, we are also seeking a candidate with experience of property development and a qualified finance professional.
We recognise the benefits and opportunities of having a diverse community of Board members and are actively encouraging applicants from a wide range of backgrounds.
The Board of Trustees, who are also directors of the Hospice, determines the overall direction and development of the Hospice through good governance and clear strategic planning, alongside commitment to our organisation values.
