Our Governance

We know that good governance is fundamental to public trust. This requires behaving always with integrity, being accountable, operating proper controls, managing risks, and working to our plan and effectively through the board and committees, with clear lines of responsibility.

The board of the Foundation has extensive experience and skills in all of the relevant areas and disciplines for its role – finance, corporate and charitable governance, palliative care, hospice operations, community and social organisations, and business management.

The board members are the trustees of the charity and are listed here (link). All of the directors are independent and none have any interest in the company other than as subscribing members. None of the directors are related to each other.

Wicklow Hospice Foundation is a company limited by guarantee (CLG) with company registration number 474539. The Revenue Commissioners have granted charitable exemption (CHY 18985) and the Charities Regulatory Authority number is 20073800.

We subscribe to the Code of Practice for Good Governance of Community, Voluntary and Charitable Organisations in Ireland.  http://www.governancecode.ie/about.php
