St. Luke’s Hospice is a charity providing compassionate palliative and end of life care to people whose illnesses are no longer curable. We deliver care to ensure dignity and empower people to make the choices they want, from the moment they are diagnosed.

Care for loved ones

We can provide a range of support to the loved ones of those living with a life limiting illness and those that have experienced a bereavement.

We are so grateful to our local community - and people like you - who donate, fundraise, volunteer and include gifts in their Wills to help the Hospice continue to provide specialist palliative and end of life care and support for local people and their families.
