We are here to support you

St Peter's Hospice is a local charity that provides care and support to adults who are living with a progressive life-limiting illness in the Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset area. We have been established for over 40 years and support up to 500 patients at any one time. The majority of our support is provided in people's homes.

People receiving our care have a wide range of conditions, including cancer, heart failure, lung disease and neurological illness. Support is focused around the physical, psychological, social and spiritual issues that can arise as a result of serious illness, in order to improve the quality of a person's life. Everyone is unique, and we provide support with that in mind.


"They know the technical and medical side of things whilst also having the human, spiritual side too. You get the whole package wrapped up in one person." Dave & Janey's story
