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.


"I'll never forget the day I had my first call with my Community Nurse Specialist. She put my mind at ease, the support she gave me was great." John's story

Help us be here when it matters most

Every year, thanks to your generosity, 1000's of people have the comfort and expert care they need when it matters most. In 2020, we lost over £2 million in funding – every week diminishing our ability to help those at home, those in need of specialist care and those that need support through bereavement.

Help us ensure that our patients and their families have a beacon of hope and never feel alone, when it matters most.

Make a donation

Thanks to your support we can be a comfort through fear and anxiety, a supportive hand, a voice at the end of the phone, a nurse on the doorstep, a place to feel normal and a beacon of hope.
