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.
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.
Remembering a loved one
Thank you to everyone who joined us for our 2018 Light up a Life service to remember all of those loved ones who cannot be with us at this very poignant time of year. It was our privilege to welcome you, and we hope you found some comfort in the evening.
If you would like to receive details of our 2019 Light up a Life appeal and service, which will take place in early December, please complete the form below. If you would like more information about Light up a Life, please contact the Fundraising team on 01793 816161, or by email.
Our Light up a Life service is a very special occasion at which hundreds of people from across our community gather to remember people from our lives who sadly won’t be with us at Christmas.
There are traditional carols, readings and an especially poignant moment during the service where our Christmas tree, which stands proudly at the front of the hospice over the festive period, is lit with each of the lights representing the life of someone special.
The generous donations received from our Light up a Life appeal go straight towards helping Prospect Hospice provide our specialised care and support for patients and their families when they seek our help. Last year, mostly through the support of our local community, we were able to care for and support more than 6,600 people, as patients or their family members.
Rach and I were born between two minutes of each other and we were so close. I miss her all the time, and especially at Christmas, which she always loved. Coming to Light up a Life means everything to us. It’s a chance for us to think about Rach around the time of
her anniversary, and the music, the readings and the lovely atmosphere make it very special.
The care we offer to patients and their families costs over £8.4m every year, seventy-two percent of which is raised through the support of our community. Read more about our amazing supporters.
