After Sunday, it is the highlight of my week. My programme hinges around it. I plan carefully so as to be free and in the best form I can be to reap all the benefits…. I cannot recommend this service highly enough. There is nothing to fear and so much to gain.

How we are Funded

It costs approximately £3 million per year to maintain our existing services. All our services are free to patients and relatives.

We receive approximately 30% of our total annual running costs from the Health & Social Care Board. The gap in funding means that we are heavily dependent on grant awarding bodies along with the good will and generosity of the local community. 

Local financial support comes primarily from many individuals, businesses and support groups, providing 70% of our annual running costs. The vital contribution from our 500+ volunteer community complementing the work of our staff, guarantees that every patient and their family receive, free of charge, an exemplary specialist palliative care service.

Our Mission

To provide compassionate palliative care to individuals with a life limiting illness, their families and carers through high quality, specialist, holistic support.

Our Vision

Working in collaboration with our local community, we will strive for excellence and seek innovation in providing specilaist, multi-professional, palliative care to patients, their families and carers in the hospice and their own homes
