How we use your donations

As a charity, we rely on wonderful people just like you to donate, fundraise and support the care we provide to local people and their families, when they need it the most. Less than 30% of our funding comes from the NHS so we're incredibly grateful for every donation made.

Your support helps people like Vlad.

When the pandemic hit, Vlad, who lived in a care home, was unable to be visited by his parents. In his distress, his condition deteriorated and the Hospice got involved to help co-ordinate his care and manage his pain. His mother now credits the Hospice with saving her son's life.

Your support helps to fund care for people like Vlad, who live with incurable conditions.

"You could see Nabeel was brighter just by being here."

Nabeel was admitted to the Hospice in 2019 and gave him and his family the support and space they needed to talk about dying without shame or fear.

Maisie Burke was cared for by our Hospice at Home team before she peacefully died at home with her family beside her.
