We strive to provide the highest standards of nursing and medical care, to sustain quality of life and dignity and to provide patients with relief from pain when they need it most.

To the families, friends and carers of our patients we extend the same loving support, help and counselling, as such illnesses affect whole families.

The Hospice operates as a 12 bedded adult in-patient unit as well as a day hospice. The Hospice helps its patients enjoy a better quality of life, often enabling them to do things which they thought had gone forever. It is a special place which is full of life, not just a place where people go to die: many benefit from day hospice care and others return home following a period as an in-patient or attend our out-patients clinics.

Adult in-patient services are available to individuals with complex problems associated with a life limiting illness. Our specialist services are delivered by a multi professional team including doctors, nurses, counsellors, social workers, chaplains and therapists. Planned admissions include short term relief for carers and end of life care is supportive and sensitive to the needs of the patient and their loved ones.

The Day Hospice offers supportive care to people with living with a life threatening or life limiting illness. The surroundings are very relaxed and comfortable offering a choice of activities that are centered on wellbeing, companionship and support.

We provide an Outpatient Clinic which runs three times a week. This is an introduction to the palliative care service, symptom control, an alternative to admission, psychological support and a link with the Oncology service.

The Family Support Team is here to help and support our patients, their families and their carers. They can help manage the future challenges and help people feel more resilient and able to face the future with courage. We also offer help with a range of activities, including memory boxes, boxes of hugs and kisses and writing about the future.

Spiritual Care is provided to give compassionate companionship to patients and families and to be a support in whatever way they may be asked.

Reiki Therapy is available to all Patients and Carers as a gentle therapy to aid relaxation, makes you feel at peace, reduce anxiety, relive stress and help boost the immune system. You start moving toward your unique physical, mental, and spiritual balance, and your body's own healing mechanisms begin to function more effectively.

By its very nature the care and support the Hospice provides is expensive. Raising the ongoing funds to sustain the service is a huge challenge given the geographic/catchment area of the Hospice and population from whom we have to draw funds.

The Hospice employs either full or part time around 120 staff. In addition to this the Hospice benefits from the help of around 440 active volunteers who are involved in every aspect of the hospices operation. We estimate that we save approximately £400,000 yearly by having volunteers supporting our staff based on full time equivalent roles, but this figure can’t represent the level of commitment, empathy and dedication that we are gifted by each volunteer for the thousands of hours that they offer us year on year.

Hearing Dogs for Deaf People 293358 Hearing Dogs for Deaf People has been through an incredible journey to get where we are today. In a nutshell, we train dogs to alert deaf people to sounds they would otherwise miss – simple sounds that many people take for granted like the doorbell, alarm clock and even danger signals like the fire alarm.

OWEN Open Water Education Network 11687682 This charitable organisation was founded in 2018 after 12 year old Owen Jenkins saved 2 friends from drowning but drowned himself on 10.07.2017. We campaigned to have throw lines and signage put at the place Owen lost his life, it is now known locally as Owens place.
My son died a hero.
Owen did not know that he had other options on that day as water safety is not in the school curriculum. I set up OWEN- A water safety programme for all ages that highlights what to do in an emergency, how to spot dangers/hazards and how to self rescue if the find themselves in the water.
I teach them how to use a throwline effectively.
I visit schools and community groups educating children and adults for free. With the help of the Nottingham Fire service and a swim instructor we created a package that I use in schools and community groups originality for senior school children. Since founded I have now created a primary school package an animation for early years and a book that tells the story of a dog who doesn't know what to do when he finds himself in difficulty. He is rescued by a duck and fish (both water animals) and taught about why rivers are dangerous places to swim.
We have printed enough books so that every primary school in Nottinghamshire will recieve one for free by the end of 2024.
My aim is to provide every school I visit with a delivery box that contains all the information needed including throw lines so they can cover water safety during school hours.

Advocacy involves a partnership between an advocate and an individual who may be feeling vulnerable, isolated or disempowered. Our staff, as advocates, provide support, information and representation with the aim of empowering and enabling them to express their needs and choices.

Our independence is vital to us. We follow the Advocacy Charter which ensures that we maintain our independence, at all times. Our Board of Trustees is made up of industry experts and people who currently use or have previously used our services.

Ronald McDonald House Charities 802047 At Ronald McDonald House Charities we provide free ‘home away from home’ accommodation at specialist children's hospitals across the UK, enabling families to stay close to their child and maintain a degree of normal family life. We support families while their child receives care and treatment in a specialist children's hospital by giving them a warm and welcoming place to rest their heads, just a moment away from their child. For the past 30 years we have helped tens of thousands of families during some of the toughest periods in their lives.

When a child is in hospital their family can often be faced with having to travel long distances each day and either pay for costly hotel rooms or sleep on a chair at their bedside. Our Houses provide our families with a comfortable place to stay that's close to their child, giving them more time and energy to focus on being together.

There are currently 12 Ronald McDonald Houses across the UK, all just moments away from their respective children's wards, with plans for further developments well under-way. Our dedicated teams of staff and volunteers welcome families to stay for days, weeks and even years, and help them to feel as at home as possible.

As an independent charity, we rely on the support and generosity of our volunteers, fundraisers and donors, and thanks to their tireless efforts the Houses are able to help over 8,000 families each year. It is our mission to ensure we have sufficient funds and expertise to develop and sustain free accommodation at every specialist children’s hospital in the UK. This will allow us to help thousands more families stay together, while their child is in hospital, in the years to come.

The main service it provides is one-to-one counselling delivered by specialist counsellors and therapists for adults, young people and children over the age of 4. This includes pre-trial therapy for those individuals going through a criminal justice process. Support and information are also provided to partners and other family members to enable them to help their loved one on their journey of recovery.

A variety of training opportunities are provided in the local community which focus on raising awareness and prevention. Working in partnership with a range of organisations, training is provided to vulnerable young people as well as to professionals.

The Birchall Trust has been working in the local community for the last 28 years and has established an excellent reputation for its specialist knowledge and expertise. It operates from a set of shared values that ensure service users are treated with respect, understanding and compassion.

The charity was founded by Christine Birchall in 1991 and was initially called the South Cumbria Rape and Abuse Service. Christine was inspired to set up the service after she watched a BBC documentary highlighting the lack of support for victims of rape and sexual abuse. Christine set about gaining qualifications in counselling and set up a local support service, running from an attic room in Kendal with £300 and a telephone contributed by British Telecom. The service was initially run by Christine supported by two volunteers.

From these humble beginnings the charity has developed significantly over the years. After initially having its main base in Kendal, the charity moved to 60, Hartington Street in Barrow in 2000 where it has had its main offices and counselling rooms for the last 19 years. Following Christine’s death in 2006, the organisation decided to change its name to the Birchall Trust. This was not only to recognise Christine’s work but also to give the charity a more palatable and dignified name which was well received.

In 2010 the charity expanded into North Lancashire and now has 5 counselling/therapy rooms in Barrow, 2 counselling/therapy rooms in Kendal, 1 counselling room in Lancaster and 7 counselling/therapy rooms and an office space at a Community Hub in Morecambe.

By gaining this full picture, we can personalise and create a package of support that can help you in the short, medium and long term. Whether you are injured, recovering from an illness, feeling stressed or anxious, our approach is always the same; understand, personalise, deliver.

• Help people with a life limiting illness to have the best life possible; and to stay at home for as long as possible, wherever home may be.
• Support families and carers throughout their loved one’s illness and onto bereavement.
• Equip those caring for people with a life limiting illness and working in an end-of-life environment, with the skills and knowledge required to ensure they provide the best quality care.
• Equip professional carers with the skills and knowledge required to ensure they provide the best quality end of life care.

Annually we care for 2,000 people, providing 34,000 hours of care. Our approach is person centred, providing not only for people’s physical requirements, but also catering for their emotional, social, spiritual, and cultural needs.

Unlike some hospices we do not have a bedded unit, our beds are in the homes of the patients we care for, where the need is highest.

Our Hospice at Home service cares for terminally ill patients in their own homes, providing high quality care for patients and emotional support for family members. The service enables patients to die at home, with dignity, surrounded by their loved ones. Last year, 1,059 local terminally ill people received end-of-life care at home and 2,766 people called Treetops when they had an urgent care request.

Our Wellbeing Team provides an extensive range of wellbeing activities to help people better manage their illness.

Last year, we had 5,813 wellbeing contacts in the hospice and through home visits.

We are one of the main providers of bereavement care in our region, offering bereavement counselling and emotional support, including counselling and play therapy for bereaved children. We work to engage and empower people and communities to have conversations about death, dying, bereavement and loss, ultimately enabling people to share their preferences and wishes about this. This helps to foster healthier attitudes towards death and normalises dying. Last year we provided 3,031 adult, and 1,173 child bereavement counselling sessions.

Our services are free of charge to patients and their families. Each year, we must raise more than £4.2 million to run. State funding only covers 30% of our care and supporting infrastructure costs. We must fundraise to pay for the remaining 70%.
