Find out about the wide range of end-of-life care services that we offer to patients and their families. These are designed to provide compassionate, personalised support during every stage of a life-limiting illness, in every kind of care setting, to anyone who needs it.
We couldn’t manage without considerable support from our local community. Learn about all the different ways in which you can help Prospect Hospice, for example by taking part in fundraising events, playing our lottery, or remembering us in your will. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
Prospect Hospice is a leading provider of education and training for end-of-life care in Swindon and north-east Wiltshire. We provide education and development opportunities, all of which aim to encourage learning and build confidence in end-of-life care and support.

A significant amount of Prospect Hospice’s income is raised through our charity shops. The success of our retail operation depends on the generous support of the local community (donating and buying goods), and the commitment of our managers and volunteers. Find out more here.
What it is, and how we can support you
We also understand that being at home can bring real challenges for patients, families and carers to overcome.
Prospect’s specialist care helps people to cope better by building their confidence and reducing their anxiety through a range of advice, information and emotional and practical support. We also help by working alongside your doctor, community nurses and others to provide coordinated care.
Our care at home is available to anyone with an advanced, progressive illness, who wishes to be cared for at home, whether that’s their own home or a care home. Prospect Hospice’s outpatient services including day hospice and carer support are available for people at home too. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like to find out more.
At Prospect Hospice, we believe that patients should have a say in the care that they receive, including where they are when they receive it. Prospect@Home is a service that helps people who are living with a life-limiting condition to be in the place they most want to be as they approach the end of their lives.
We know that, for many people, staying in their own home is what matters most during their illness and at the very end of their lives, surrounded by the people they love, in familiar, comfortable surroundings. We also understand that being at home can bring real challenges for patients, families and carers to overcome.
Prospect@Home is a service which has supported hundreds of local people since it was first launched back in 2008, following a community appeal to raise £1M. It has become hugely valued by patients and families whose wish is to be at home when they need our support in the final weeks and days of life.
Our Prospect@Home service helps people to cope better by building their confidence and reducing anxiety through a range of advice, information and emotional and practical support. Prospect@Home provides hands-on care in the home, night and day. Our team of nurses, nursing assistants and specially-trained home support volunteers work alongside the patient’s doctor, community nurses and others involved in a patient’s care to provide coordinated care, designed and delivered to meet the wishes of patients whose greatest wish is to be at home.
