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.

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.
Do something 100 times in celebration of Captain Tom's 101st birthday
Captain Tom became a national treasure during the pandemic after completing 100 laps of his garden in celebration of his 100th birthday to raise money for charity. This year, to celebrate his 101st birthday, the nation is being asked to join together to do whatever they can, 100 times, to help raise vital funds for a charity of their choice.
From Friday 30 April to Monday 3 May, we’re challenging you to raise money for your local hospice by doing something, anything, 100 times. This could be running, jumping, eating, painting… anything you think would be fun or a challenge!
People of all ages can take part and the only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on gathering with friends and family, including social distancing.
