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.
Those who enjoy the food made at Prospect Hospice will know it is made by our brilliant catering team. What may not be apparent is that most of the ingredients are sourced in a very affordable fashion, from a charity that is having a positive impact on our environment.
Every Thursday, our catering services manager Rob uses a charity called FareShare for the majority of his shopping. FareShare save good food from going to waste and redistribute it to frontline charities, for example, if a batch of Marmite was delivered to a supermarket with a misprint on their packaging, rather than bin the Marmite, FareShare would buy it from the supermarket and sell it on the charities at a reduced price.
“For 22 pence per kilo I can get a range of products and ingredients, from cherry tomatoes on the vine to a case of halloumi, to prime cut lamb steaks,” said Rob. “I order in bulk what I want online on the Thursday from FareShare, and it’s delivered to the hospice by Monday lunchtime. It’s a brilliant way of getting good value for money while helping to stop unnecessary food waste.”
