Trustees & Executive Committee
The NAHH was originally established in 1999 as the National Forum for Hospice at Home, the name was changed from forum to association in 2010 to reflect the growing body of member services. In August 2014, the NAHH became a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation and the Executive Committee became Trustees of the charity. Trustees are all experienced professionals who have gained knowledge of palliative and end of life care and are currently working in organisations that provide hospice at home. Trustee and committee work is an addition to their normal employment and requires attendance at a minimum of three meetings a year. The Trustees are responsible for the management of the association, the maintaining and updating of the NAHH constitution, terms of reference, business and strategic planning and all operational related requirements. Minutes of all committee activity and meetings held are available in the Executive Committee Meetings section in the Members Area.
In October 2015, Sue Varvel, Director of Nursing & Clinical Services, Rennie Grove Hospice Care became the NAHH first President – a position offered in recognition of Sue’s dedication and commitment to the association and her expertise in current field of practice.
One of the orginal founders of the Assocation, Rosalind Matty, became the NAHH first Patron in November 2015. Ros has maintained close links with the Association and was operationally involved up until 2008. Ros is pictured below and launched the National Forum for Hospice at Home (subsequently renamed NAHH) in September 2000.
