We're building a new hospice for our community

St Wilfrid’s Hospice has served its local community for over 30 years. However, to continue providing our specialist care we urgently need to build a new purpose-built Hospice, a dream-building which will enable us to support our local community for the next 30 years and beyond.

Why a new hospice?

When the Hospice opened in 1987 we cared for 188 patients. Last year this had risen to 928 and research shows this is going to increase by at least 17% in the next five years.

Our services have expanded beyond recognition - the current site is no longer fit-for-purpose. The quality and levels of care we provide are now under threat and we can no longer meet the growing demand for our services.

Your new Hospice

A new Hospice will enable us to create a dream-building which incorporates all the 21st century facilities we currently do not have and it will safeguard an asset of immense local significance: an asset which uses high-quality services and skills to deliver the very best end of life care for patients and their loved ones.

As now, the beneficiaries will be patients, families, staff, volunteers and supporters, who will collectively use and access the broad spectrum of our work in the future.
