Join Our Senior Leadership Team

Prospect Hospice is a highly respected local charity with deep roots in the community which it has served for 38 years. Prospect Hospice provides a wide range of care and support to people with life limiting illnesses and their families. In the last year 2,673 patients were cared for across all of our services and our team now comprises more than 200 staff (FTE) and over 850 volunteers.

The services are leading edge; enabling people to access the support and care they need to live well for as long as possible and die with dignity in the place of their choice. Like most Hospices we rely on the income generated from our extensive fundraising activities and network of charity shops for the majority of our funding, generating over £5.3M last year, (added to £2.1M we receive from the local CCG) and this will need to continue to grow as we seek to extend our service to support even more people.

Prospect Hospice published a new, five-year strategic plan in 2017, focused on a vision of:
Excellent, personalised and compassionate care for everyone affected by a life-limiting illness
We’ve agreed three key strategic themes that will inform and drive our work over the next 5 years:

• We will provide excellent services and support within the hospice and our community to meet the needs of all patients, their families and carers

• As the lead organisation in palliative and end-of-life care, we will extend our influence across the community to improve understanding and support for everyone affected by a life-limiting illness

• We will strengthen our organisation, to ensure patients and those around them can continue to rely on us being there for them.

Prospect Hospice is the only provider of specialist palliative care services in Swindon, Marlborough and north east Wiltshire. We offer Inpatient and Day Therapy services and Community support and advice, as well as Prospect@Home, our hospice at home service in the area.
