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 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.


"Everyone knows me by name and I feel welcomed every time I arrive… I couldn't ask for more really. I feel like I'm their only patient because that's how they make you feel." Emma's story

Make a donation

Since 1978, when our very first community nurses reached out to our very first patients, we’ve been caring for people with life-limiting illnesses in Bristol and the surrounding areas free of charge.

We can only do this with the generosity of our supporters. Please donate to St Peter’s Hospice today so that we can keep helping families when they need us most. Thank you so much.
