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.
Find out about the 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 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.
A leaflet that informs businesses how to give to charity through their wages inspired a local Swindon company to volunteer and raise funds for Prospect Hospice.
Payroll Giving is used by many charities in the UK, and is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to the charities and good causes of their choice. On 3 April 2019, AFL Telecommunications Europe, presented Prospect Hospice with a cheque for £460, awarded to the hospice as a result of an employee vote; those surveyed volunteered for AFL during the last financial year and nominated their preference from a choice of several local charities.
Fiona Hill, HR and EHS Advisor for AFL, said: “AFL Swindon is actively involved with Prospect Hospice by supporting with a number of fundraising activities throughout the year, including cake sales, Easter Egg collection, Christmas raffle fund donations, stock sorting at retail distribution centre, and the payroll giving scheme. We recognise the valuable work of Prospect Hospice to provide care and support in the community.”
“Without the support of our volunteers and organisations such as AFL Global, we just couldn’t provide the range and quality of services we do for our local community,” said corporate fundraiser Lisa Curtis. “It is so important to us that our volunteers know that they are making a vital contribution and are fulfilling their reasons for volunteering. Being voted for ‘best volunteering experience’ by the employees of AFL Global, out of all the volunteering opportunities worldwide, is such an honour and it means we are getting it right for those people who generously donate their precious time.
“We are genuinely thrilled to receive such an accolade and the cheque for £460. Through their fundraising activities and Payroll Giving, AFI have raised over £2,090 during 2018 into this year – to give you context, that amount of money will pay towards eight full night shifts from our Prospect@Home nurses, which gives huge reassurance that the patient is supported throughout the night, but also means their family can get some rest too. Our grateful thanks goes out to all the employees who voted and to AFL Global for all their support.”
