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.
Dance lessons are underway for the seven fundraising couples taking part in a charity event to help raise vital funds to support local people living with a life limiting illness.
The couples will meet every Tuesday for six weeks in total at St Joseph’s College where they will be taught how to waltz and jive by teacher Maria Howse ahead of the Prospect Does Strictly final on 13 November, in front of a live audience.
Maria has been the Principal at Cadley Dance Studios since 1990, and has supported Prospect Hospice for many years. She said: “I am delighted to be involved in the Battle of The Ballroom. Prospect Hospice cared for the former Principal of Cadley many years ago and it feels great to give something back to such a fantastic charity. It’s great fun teaching such an enthusiastic group of people and I am really looking forward to seeing them strut their stuff on the dance floor on the final night.”
Lisa Curtis, corporate and major donor fundraiser, said of the lessons: “Our couples were a little nervous at first but Maria made everyone feel welcome and relaxed. There were plenty of laughs and smiles on the first go and everyone is looking forward to the next one.”
Each couple has pledged to raise £300 each in sponsorship for taking part in this event and that money will all go directly to the hospice where it will be used to enable local people to access our range of services which are all offered free of charge. Thank you to everyone who has supported them.”
If you weren’t able to take part, there’s still a chance to get involved by being part of the audience at the grand finale and cheering on the contestants. Tickets for standard seating are priced at £10 each and are available to purchase from our website.
