We are the regional reps for the South.


“I come from a nursing and health care recruitment background and have worked at St Raphael’s now for just over 6 years. My initial role at the hospice was to implement and then manage the Hospice Neighbour Scheme which we introduced in 2014. I have been Volunteer Services Manager since Sept 2015”


“I come from a customer service background and have worked for St Barnabas and Chestnut Tree House for over 8 years. Initially I came on board as a Voluntary Services Officer and have been the Head of Voluntary Services since 2019”

Our region has representation from across Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, Kent and South London. We are a very active group meeting up to four times a year in person where we get the opportunity to share best practice, bounce ideas and not to mention have a look around each other’s hospices. As well as meeting in person we welcome members to send any burning questions through which are emailed out to the group for discussion or sharing of information.

The group is most importantly an opportunity to support each other and we would love to hear any prospective new members to welcome into the region.

Mark and Ginny
