St Wilfrid’s Hospice is an independent local charity and, for 30 years, has been caring for and supporting those in our community who are in the last phase of their lives. Our specialist team of highly trained and experienced staff deliver a wide range of individually tailored care. At any one time we are caring for at least 240 patients at the Hospice, as well as within care homes and our local hospital; however the majority of our care takes place in people’s own homes.

Our care is compassionate and all-encompassing and includes emotional, physical, practical and clinical and it extends to family, friends and carers.

We take time to listen and understand the individual needs and wishes of our patients, to make sure they each receive the care they deserve to help them achieve the best quality of life for as long as possible.

All our vital services are provided free of charge, thanks to the generous support of fundraisers and donors. Only 13% of our running costs are currently met by the NHS and we rely on our community to fund the remainder, which equates to just over £7 million each year.
