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.
If you haven’t got a Will in place, your estate may not be left to the person you intend it to. For example, for a couple that isn’t married, the house you’ve been living in for a number of years, may not automatically be transferred to the person you’ve been living with. A Will is an important document to have in place and we are working with a number of local solicitors to make the process that little bit easier.
We are inviting local people to take advantage of a fundraising will-writing initiative, which sees local solicitors donating their fees for writing wills to Prospect Hospice during September.
Three local firms are offering a limited number of appointments for people who need to write their will. Under the scheme, this can be done for a suggested donation of the solicitors’ regular fee, less the VAT.
Lisa Curtis from Prospect Hospice’s fundraising team said: “Prospect Hospice has run its Make a Will Month initiative for several years, benefiting from thousands of pounds in donations to the charity, thanks to the generous support of the people who write their wills and the solicitors who offer their services. There is only a limited number of spaces available at each of the firms during September so people who want to take part in the scheme are urged to make contact with firms early.”
The firms taking part in Make a Will Month are Bower and Bailey, Francis George and Forrester Sylvester Mackett. People wanting to write their will should contact each of the firms directly and mention that they are interested in Prospect Hospice’s Make a Will Month offer.
Go to Make a Will and find out more.
