ScaleUp Radio

Jan 22, 2024

Welcome back to ScaleUp Radio with Granger Forson. In this inspiring episode, we're delving into the remarkable journey of Clare Gallie, CEO of Lewis-Manning Hospice Care. For five years, Clare has been at the helm of this esteemed 32-year-old charity, impacting over 800 patients annually in East Dorset and Purbeck with compassionate end-of-life care.


Clare's tenure has been marked by significant transformations, including a strategic shift towards providing closer-to-home services. This was a pivotal move, stemming from a deep understanding of patient needs and a drive to fill service gaps, thereby fostering stronger community ties and a revitalised organisational culture. 


At the heart of Clare's leadership lies a commitment to creating an environment of open communication, honesty, and, above all, kindness. This approach has not only attracted top talent but has also cultivated a positive and loving culture within the hospice, making it a sought-after place to work.


Under Clare's guidance, Lewis-Manning Hospice Care has developed sustainable income streams through diversified fundraising efforts and charity shops. Clare's strategic financial management, coupled with her knack for involving the community in the charity's mission, has been instrumental in its growth.


Finally, Clare shares her insights on maintaining personal wellbeing as a leader, emphasising the importance of self-care, exercise, and nutrition to sustain her energy and focus. Her forward-thinking goals include expanding the hospice's reach and deepening its impact in the community.
