Meet The Trustees

Derian House Trustees offer guidance and support to the Senior Management Team through regular sub-committee meetings and bi-monthly Board meetings. Our Trustees are all volunteers and receive no financial reward for the significant amount of time they give to the charity.  Offering a wide range of skills to support the diverse nature of a hospice the Trustees ensure we maintain our culture, values and governance alongside providing the very best care and support to those who need our services.
