Seeking Trustee with HR Experience

April 27th, 2022

Are you skilled in human resource management?  Have governance experience and support the values of palliative care?  If this sounds like you, we would welcome your expression of interest in becoming a trustee of the Te Omanga Hospice Trust.

Te Omanga Hospice works to ensure that all who have a terminal or life-threatening illness across the Hutt Valley receive equitable, responsive, and proactive palliative care support.   From small beginnings in 1979, the Hospice now employs over 100 staff and has over 500 amazing volunteers, who are essential to the success of Te Omanga.

Te Omanga works closely with other Hutt Valley health and social care providers, sharing its knowledge and expertise in palliative care to influence the quality of care our community receives.   This extends the reach of Te Omanga’s services beyond those delivered directly and provides patients with integrated and seamless palliative care services.  During 2020/21, one in three people who died in the Hutt Valley were supported by Te Omanga Hospice.
