We are a charity that provides “away from home accommodation” for families who have a child in hospital. We are looking for a new CEO to work with the Board to create and deliver an ambitious strategy, lead us into the future and build on all of the tremendous work that the retiring current CEO and the team have done over the last 15 years.
