The key information:

What is the Community Advisory Group?
The Community Advisory Group is a collection of individuals from across the Wakefield District who want to share their thoughts on how we can ensure Wakefield Hospice's services remain 'fit-for-purpose' for months, years and generations to come.

Is it right for me?
Anyone is welcome to apply to join, regardless of your experience, background or relationship with the hospice. We are keen to hear from a diverse range of people from a variety of backgrounds.

When is it, and how much time do I need to commit?
The group runs quarterly (four times a year), and will be launched in October 2022. Each group meeting will last between 90-120 minutes, structured around an informal agenda with refreshments available for all. 

Where does the group meet?
Initially we will be meeting at Wakefield Hospice in the Day Therapy Unit, although we may host the group in other venues within the local region if the group wishes to do so (e.g. cafes, restaurants, pubs or external meeting spaces).

What will I be expected to contribute?
The main thing we need you to contribute to the group is honest feedback. There are no costs associated to being a member of the group, nor is it a paid role either. The group is here for people who want to make a difference to their local community and ensure our offering of care is the best and most appropriate offerings to serve the local community.

How do I get involved/find out more information?
The group is being headed by Wakefield Hospice's Quality & Audit Officer, Naomi Noble. If you would like to submit your interest in joining the group, or for an informal chat to find out more, please contact Naomi by emailing naomi.noble@wakefield-hospice.co.uk, call 01924 331400 or return the Statement of Interest form (click here to download).
