We also support children and adults who are facing bereavement.

We rely heavily on the help and generosity of our fundraisers, donors and volunteers. Without them we wouldn’t be here.

We all share a common goal: to be here every step of the way for everyone who needs us, helping life to go on in the face of dying, death and bereavement.

By visiting them in their homes, over the phone with our 24/7 advice line, through our day therapies, and at The Hospice, through all the smiles and all the tears we guide those who need us, because we believe in making every memory matter.

Our ambition: We want more people to have dignity and choice at end of life.

Our priorities: 

Reaching out based on need regardless of diagnosis or circumstances
Empowering people to plan ahead, share their choices and achieve their wishes
