Living Well Dying Well are seeking Trustees to specialise in one of the following areas:
Health and Social Care Policy
We encourage reflection on how to live life fully, while planning and preparing for the end of life. Our courses, training, conversations and services help people think about it, talk about it and plan for it, in a safe and supportive way.
In the UK, we are pioneering the role of a Doula, as a companion and mentor, in support of the whole family, before, during and after this important life event... We also run training seminars for therapists and health practitioners, to build skills and support them to find ways of feeling more comfortable around death in their professional life.
Our overriding wish is to encourage an approach to dying that is humane, respectful, and honouring of an individual's identity and sense of self. We encourage an environment of loving support, kindness, respect and dignity, whether at home, in a nursing home or hospital, to increase the confidence and capacity of family carers to look after their dying. We recognise and nourish the abilities that already exist within people and communities to act compassionately towards each other.
This is a fantastic opportunity to be at the forefront of changing attitudes and the way society deals with death and dying.
The charity is based in East Sussex but you would be able to work remotely. We are open to suggestions as to the commitment in terms of time you think you could make. Board meetings take place once a quarter.
