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.

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.
Eight-year-old Gracie Jefferies kindly brought in a donation of £100 for Prospect Hospice by making and selling loom bands.
Young supporter Gracie popped into the hospice with her mum and her grandparents to present a cheque for £100 to the hospice. She has been making loom bands for over six months and selling them to her mum’s beauty clients and in school. She asked for a small donation in return for the bands and so was thrilled to learn she had raised so much money. She chose to support the hospice as her nan, Mary, receives regular rest bite care from the hospice and attends Day Therapy once a week. Her Granddad, John, also attends our Carers Support once a month.
Gracie said of her fundraising: “Twisting all the loom bands made my fingers go blue; I sometimes twisted six in one go! Since I started making them I have emptied a big tub full of loom bands to make the key chains – I have used thousands. I chose to raise money because my nanny and Granddad are looked after here, and when I come to visit I like to play with my baby cousin in the hospice playroom.”
“I couldn’t feel prouder of my Gracie,” said her mum, Alison, “raising £100 for Prospect Hospice where her nanny goes for respite and granddad for carers support. It’s a very special memory.”
Community Fundraiser Hollie Ricketts said “I would like to say a huge thank you on behalf of everyone at Prospect Hospice for Gracie’s fantastic donation, and for her support of the hospice. We all think she is a superstar fundraiser! We are also glad to hear she enjoys our playroom when she visits us. Thank you Gracie.”
