Good Governance Programme

Hospice UK's Good Governance Programme provides a range of resources to support Chairs, individual trustees and hospice boards as a whole.

Hospice UK is here to help hospice boards

What is governance?

Governance is an umbrella term for the systems, processes and types of behaviour that enable trustees to hold the organisation in trust, steer its work and optimise the benefit to current and future beneficiaries.

Our programme helps member hospices to improve their governance, ensuring they are fit for purpose and equipped to be leaders in providing high-quality palliative and end of life care.
