On average we provide end of life care to about 100 people every year, plus their families, carers and all who are important to them. This represents around 9,000 hours of service delivery annually. In addition, we conduct more than 400 appointments for bereavement support.
To continue to meet this demand we need to generate £660,000 this year. We will receive just £40,000 from the NHS the rest we have to find from donations, fundraising and legacies.
If you would like to donate to HospiceCare by making a one-off or a regular donation you can click the BT Mydonate button below. If you decide to donate regularly, you become one of our “Friends” which you can find out more about below. If you would like to discuss a regular donation with a member of staff please don't hesitate to call Rebecca Taylor, Tel: 01665 606515 or you can email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We organise a wide range of events throughout the year to help us raise the vital funds. By getting involved you can enjoy an exciting new challenge, meet new people, and do something different with colleagues, friends or family.
Just take a look at what we’ve got coming up. We would love to see you there!View items...
Grants from Trusts and Foundations are an important source of income, currently accounting for about 24% of our total income.
Some grants are restricted, only to be used for specific purposes or projects, but most are unrestricted and can be used to support our core running costs. This is important, because almost 80% of our total costs are for payroll, reflecting the fact that our key assets are people.
Many of the Trusts listed in our Thank You Wall below have given us grants regularly over several years, and we are extremely grateful that they appreciate and support the work we are doing.View items...
