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.


Pledge to volunteer in 2019 and enjoy volunteering opportunities across the Hospice!
