We have a great team of volunteers from many different countries who work in our stores, deliver goods, raise funds, offer admin support as needed, monitor the finances and develop the strategic direction of Madrugada. We could not function or provide the care we do without them.

All members of our managing Boards are volunteers, these include all members of the Direção (Management Board) including the President, the Fiscal Board (who monitor the financial activity) and the members of our Assembleia Geral (AGM facilitators). Members of Madrugada Associação approve all expenditures presented in the Budget (for the following year) at the Annual Assembly in November each year.

As with all developing charitable services, including other Palliative Care providers we employ 2 part-time members of staff in administration to ensure we are compliant with legal and financial regulations and a Retail Manager for our 3 outlets (supported by 2 part-time assistants). In addition, our Clinical Manager (a registered Nurse) manages the clinical activities of our Support Centre and directly supports patients and their loved ones affected by life limiting illness.

These positions ensure we can provide a consistent approach to the services we provide. Qualifications, responsibility, language skills and compliance, being the most important competencies for the personnel working in these roles.

Our registered Nurses and Carers are all self-employed and are called upon when needed for Madrugada patients.
