St Richard’s is an independent hospice that relies mainly on donations and gifts in Wills to enable us to continue to provide our services. It costs £9.72m (21/22 audited accounts) to run the hospice, including patient care and all the necessary support services.
We rely on donations and gifts in Wills for the majority of our income with less than a quarter funded by the NHS.
Voluntary donations include gifts of money and standing orders or gifts in kind, legacies and grants from trusts and other grant-making bodies. We also benefit from company and business sponsorship, payroll giving, employee fundraising, donations from organisations and donations in memoriam.
Is there a charge for hospice care?
No charge is made to patients and families for any of our services. The costs of hospice care are covered thanks mainly to the generosity of our donors and supporters.
