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.
It’s our birthday and we want as many people as possibly to join us and celebrate 40 years together!
We’re only here and able to provide specialist end of life care thanks to people like you; local people who take on brave challenges to help raise vital fund for the hospice. So, if you haven’t thought about taking on a challenge before, or have thought about it and not got any further than that, we’re appealing to you to join with others across the local community and collectively tick everything off of our list.
There are plenty of options in there for everyone. If you’re feeling like taking on an international challenge then we’ve got mountains to climb, deserts to trek and terrain to cycle through. If you’d like to stay in good old Blighty but still want to challenge yourself then why not tackle the London Marathon, swim the Thames (you don’t really have to get in the Thames) or take on the three peaks challenge.
If that all sounds a bit daunting then our 40/40 booklet has plenty of other options including a number of hospice events you can take part in, volunteering opportunities and events you can organise with a group of friends.
What will you choose to do to celebrate with us in 2020?
Whatever you do, it’ll be great to have you involved. With everyone doing their own little bit, collectively we can raise the £9million a year it takes to run the hospice and help people like the Watkins family.
“We had hoped to take the children to Disneyland but Lorna became too unwell for it to happen so the family support team put on a Disney themed party for the children. It all meant so much. We couldn’t have asked for more.” Graeme Watkins, Lorna’s husband.
