How We Are Funded

How we are funded

We are a local charity and all of our care is provided free of charge. However, it costs us around £24,000* a day to provide that care.

We rely on the following income to fund our services.

  • About £5,000 comes from the NHS
  • In the last financial year around £2,000 was funded by COVID related Government Grants and around £3,000 from Hospice UK.
  • For the remaining £14,000 we rely on Gifts in Wills, donations, our shops and other income
  • Every day we rely on supporters to leave us £4,000 as Gifts in Wills
  • Every day we rely on your fundraising activities to raise £4,000
  • Every day we rely on people like you to donate and buy so our shops can raise £4,000
