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, free of charge.
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.
Volunteers are central to our work, bringing valuable experience and enthusiasm to a wide variety of roles. If you’d like to help Prospect Hospice by giving some of your time, you’ll find all the information you need here, including current opportunities, volunteer profiles and the benefits of volunteering for us.
The staff at Prospect Hospice have one shared aim: to provide the very best end-of-life care to people in our community who really need it. If you’re interested in joining our team, check out our current vacancies and find out how we can support you in your career development.
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.
Please note the hospice is now closed to the general public. Please read below for further information.
We’re sure you will be aware of COVID-19 which has dominated the news in recent weeks and those of you who are visiting people who are receiving end of life care will have many questions.
Symptoms of the virus include a cough, fever and shortness of breath. These symptoms can be more severe in people with weakened immune systems, older people and those with long term conditions.
The people Prospect Hospice cares for both at the hospice in Wroughton and in the community throughout Swindon and north Wiltshire represent an exceptionally vulnerable group. Prospect Hospice does not have any cases of the illness and we will continue to follow government guidelines when determining necessary steps to protect staff, volunteers, patients and visitors.
As we care for people who are susceptible to more severe strains of COVID-19 we feel it is essential to take precautionary measures and we are therefore asking that the general public do not enter the hospice building at this time. Those who are visiting patients are still welcome to see their loved one and special arrangements are now in place to ensure that you are distanced from other patients and their families. We ask visitors who are experiencing symptoms to contact the hospice before they visit.
We want to ensure our patients see their loved ones so, where possible, we will make arrangements for this to happen, but we must ensure our staff, volunteers, patients and visitors are kept safe.
Further to this, the hospice has taken the decision to postpone all events being held at the hospice and outside events involving a large number of people. These are:
We have also taken the decision to close our shops and distribution centres and our remembrance garden is also closed to the pubic at this time.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation. We greatly value and need the support of local people at this time and, whilst we welcome donations, due to the current situation, we are not accepting monetary donations in the hospice’s main building. If you would like to send a vital donation and support the hospice, supporters can donate online here.
Further information is available on the government website which is updated daily.
