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.
We have really enjoyed having CJ apprentice with us since September 2018. As part of his Business Administration course at New College Swindon, CJ is working at Prospect Hospice to learn more about how health organisations function. So far he has worked as part of the Resources team, Communications team, the Fundraising team and he’s currently shadowing our Voluntary Services team.
CJ said: “All the people around the Hospice helped me to settle in really quickly, everyone was willing to give me a helping hand at the start which now allowed me to be confident enough to go and work in several departments, allowing my business knowledge to expand as much as possible. I couldn’t ask more from an apprenticeship.”
With the apprenticeship continuing to September, CJ will move to our Finance and Human resources departments next. By working closely as part of the teams, he has been able to see how health care professionals work, as well as the support functions of marketing, fundraising, volunteering, finance and resources.
Warren Finney, Head of Community Engagement said: “CJ is a really nice and positive person to be around.”
“He has become part of all the teams he’s worked with, becoming part of Prospect Hospice incredibly quickly. He even posed for a few professional photos for us as part of our new website project. It’s been fantastic supporting CJ and we’ve lots of good things planned for him as he’s doing his apprenticeship in a very active hospice.”
