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.
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.”
