An emergency fundraising appeal for Hospiscare has successfully saved the charity’s services for the year to come thanks to the support of the local community.

“Hospices are amazing places. Just seeing everything that you do for your patients at Hospiscare means so much. John felt safe here.”
“The care and efficiency is second to none. I cannot praise the service we are getting too highly. Action is quick, feedback is prompt and the smiles and concern for both of us is unbelievable. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. You are wonderful.”
“Heart failure isn’t curable, it’s a serious long term condition. But with the support from the Hospiscare Heart2Heart sessions I am not as worried as I was before... I feel reassured with the help I’ve had, and thankfully the medication and advice seems to be working.”
In the last year, so many people living with terminal conditions haven’t received the care they usually would have. The result is a large number of local people who are all much more ill now, with many sadly needing end-of-life care much sooner. “Hospiscare’s collective response to the pandemic has been the proudest moment of my working life. But we need the help of generous supporters in our local community to keep going.” – Tina Naldrett, Clinical Director and Lead Nurse
Hospiscare’s work focussing on the needs of LGBTQ+ people, and the specific needs of their carers, was featured in the 2021 Hospice UK Equality in Hospice and End-of-Life Care report. The report recognised the training that Hospiscare staff and volunteers have undertaken in order to understand the specific issues facing the LGBTQ+ community, including what LGBTQ+ carers need from the hospice in order to feel safe and supported at a time of vulnerability.
