Every Life is Precious

We give life back by improving symptoms, making a return to family life and work achievable goals for many people. For others, our environment helps them to feel safe and we support loved ones and children when someone special is no longer here.

The Hospice of St Francis is here to help people live their precious lives well.


The Hospice of St Francis helps 2,000 local people and their families to live their precious lives well through improving symptoms, achieving personal goals and helping them to feel safe.

Defined by each person’s need, our free care for people managing, or recovering from, serious illness has many forms – care at the Hospice, at home, or in our health and wellbeing Spring Centre which offers courses, workshops, clinics and therapies.

We love what we do and we love your support too. Volunteering, shopping with us, taking part in a fundraising challenge or simply donating what you can, all helps us raise over £5 million annually to fund our free care. Every penny is needed to do what we do.
