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.
We have needed to make some necessary changes to the way we operate in order to protect our customers, staff and volunteers.
We ask that you:
Please be aware that if you want to make a donation of pre-loved goods, you need to book an appointment first. We have also set up a number of local donations stations for you to donate your pre-loved good. For more information about our donations stations, along with details of items we’re unable to accept, click here.
Changing rooms in all our shops will also be closed.
Donations stored for 72 hours
To ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers and customers, all items donated to the hospice will be stored for 72 hours before they’re sent to our shops to be sold. We hope this gives our customers peace of mind that the products they purchase from us are safe to take home.
All our shops sell a wide range of good quality items. This may include clothing, shoes, jewellery and accessories, china and glass, soft furnishings, CDs, DVDs, pictures, books and household goods.
We also sell a range of new goods, including greetings cards, wrapping paper and knitting wool.
Many of our shops additionally specialise in particular goods, so if there’s something special you are looking for, then these shops may be able to help.
