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.
