Covid-19 is affecting us all but Prospect Hospice remains operational in order to support the increasing number of our community needing end of life support. Here you'll find lots of information about the virus and information and advice that we think will help you at this time.
Prospect Hospice has been providing end of life care to the people of Swindon and north east Wiltshire for over 40 years. Find out more about where we've come from and who we are here.
Find out about the 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, free of charge.
We couldn’t do what we do without considerable support from our local community. Find out all the different ways in which you can support Prospect Hospice, including fundraising, volunteering and purchasing from our shops. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
On behalf of everyone at the charity, I would like to say a huge thank you for your support this year.
It’s been a difficult year for everyone and the hospice itself has faced many challenges. Our shops closed, our events were cancelled and, back in March, when the first lockdown was announced, our income practically dried up overnight.
We were not alone in having to rethink the way we do things. Many of you had to become teachers to your children, you had to learn to work from home and you were separated from your loved ones. Despite all this upheaval, you continued to support the hospice by setting your own challenges, buying raffle tickets, volunteering your time and donating your pre-loved goods to our shops so we could raise the vital funds we needed to continue delivering our care to those most vulnerable.
Everyone at the hospice has been truly overwhelmed by your support this year so, on behalf of every one of our patients, their family and our staff, I want to thank you for the vital part you’ve played in ensuring Prospect Hospice not only survives 2020, but thrives.
Thank you, and merry Christmas to you all.
