Impact Report 2015/16 5
Welcome to our Impact Report which gives an insight into the work of The Hospice of St Francis in the  nancial year 2015/6.
This year, under our new CEO Steve
partner organisations and our ultimate goal is to widen our sphere of in uence to impact more people, whatever their background, who could bene t from our specialist care and support.
Financially, we are in good shape however the uncertain economic climate, prospect of new national fundraising regulations and potential changes
in NHS funding mean our  nancial situation may be signi cantly affected in the years ahead so we must be ready to respond to accordingly.
We could not achieve all we do without the dedication of our staff, volunteers and supporters and, on behalf of all the Trustees, I would like to thank each and every one of them for all that they do.

Chair of the Board of Trustees
