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.

Thank you to everyone who has donated items to us in recent weeks. We’ve been overwhelmed by your generosity and we’re now sorting through the thousands of pre-loved goods we’ve been given so we can get them out to our shops so they can get them on the shelves, ready for sale.
Now we’ve cleared enough space, we’re pleased to say we’ll be re-opening our donation stations on Monday 3 August and all the details of what items we’re able to accept can be found below.
Please be aware that you can only donate at a donation stations. Our shops are unable to accept any donations of pre-loved goods at this time. We also ask that you do not leave your goods outside our shops when they are closed. This is considered fly tipping and the local council will be informed to clear this away meaning we’re not able to sell anything you leave.
In line with government guidelines, all items donated will be stored for 72 hours before they are sorted and put out for sale.
Thank you for holding on to your items until we re-open. We look forward to seeing you soon.
