Who we are

The Gold Standards Framework (GSF) is a registered charity and has been the UK’s leading training provider for generalist frontline staff in caring for people in the last years of life for over 25 years. GSF is a practical and evidence-based end of life care improvement programme.

Our aim is to enable a ‘gold standard’ of care for everyone, with any condition, in any setting, given by any care provider, at any time in a person’s last years of life.

The role

We are a small team and value the contribution of our trustees, partners, associates and professional reference groups. Trustees will typically attend 4-6 online board meetings a year, along with other communications and support between meetings, plus occasional strategy away days.

Other requirements are listed by the Charity Commission in the Essential Trustee CC3a summarised here. For full details, read more on the Gov.UK website.

We are looking for people with the same shared values and commitment to improving end of life care in our country. We need experienced and passionate trustees to help our excellent team to meet our vision.

We are particularly interested in:

  • Finance
  • Fundraising
  • Business management, especially in the charity or training sectors
  • Marketing/communications
  • Health and/or social care provision
  • Palliative/End of Life Care/GSF in practice
  • Senior board level/charity experience
  • Integrated care systems/local authorities
  • Health & Care Policy
