About us

Since 1980, Prospect Hospice has provided the only dedicated end-of-life care service for people living in Swindon, Marlborough and north east Wiltshire. We bring care, comfort and confidence, around the clock, every day of the year.

Our aim is to provide excellent, personalised and compassionate care for everyone in our community who is affected by a life-limiting illness. We work in close partnership with other organisations – and specifically with local health and social care professionals – to ensure that anyone can access the best possible care whenever and wherever they need it.

Prospect Hospice provides a broad range of services to thousands of patients, carers and family members every year. Our team of nurses, doctors and therapists support patients at the hospice in Wroughton, in their own homes and care homes. Carers and family members can also access a range of free support services.

Through our outreach work – talking to businesses, schools, GP surgeries and community groups – we raise awareness about life-limiting illness and end-of-life care, and encourage conversations about death and dying. We aim to break down any barriers that might stop people from accessing our services.

Prospect Hospice is a charity, funded primarily by our local community. Each year it costs several million pounds to provide the care that our patients and their families depend on. Less than a third of our funding comes from statutory organisations like the NHS – the rest we raise ourselves. If you’d like to help, please read about the many ways in which you can support us.
