St Richard’s requires £8.8m this year to continue to provide free specialist palliative and end of life care for patients living with life-limiting illnesses and supports their loved ones. Each year the hospice team supports more than 3,000 patients, family members and bereaved people in Worcestershire.
The hospice strives to provide the best medical, practical, emotional and social support they can to help people live life to the fullest, as independently as they can, for as long as they can. They care for people with a range of illnesses including heart failure, Parkinson’s, and motor neurone disease as well as cancer.
Funding from independent grant makers such as trusts and foundations is a very important and appreciated source of income for St Richard’s Hospice.
We are indebted to the Trust and Grant organisations that remain committed to our work.
St Richard’s has launched the Build 2020 Appeal . The bigger hospice will enable more patients and families to be cared for in Worcestershire. The total cost for expanding and redeveloping the existing building in Wildwood Drive, Worcester, is £5.3m.
Over the years, through the generosity of trust funders we have been able to provide improvements in end of life care to our patient and family members throughout Worcestershire.
