Our vision is to be the lasting and thriving provider of free care to all people affected by life limiting illness in our community. This will be made possible by a community working together continually to share in the delivery of the most assuring, equally accessible and advanced care available.
Willen Hospice provides specialist end-of-life care for adults, focusing on four key areas: specialist symptom control, emotional support, spiritual support and care for carers.
Often the most distressing aspect of living with life-limiting illneses is the types of pain and symptoms which can arise. Our team of dedicated staff and volunteers can give compassionate, specialist support to patients, and their family members, to help deal with, as they wish to, the physical and emotional affects of both their illness and treatments.
We work closely with GPs, hospitals, community nursing staff and social workers and strive to make sure that our specialist care is practical, informed and supportive at all levels.
Patients receive care at our In-Patient Unit and Community Hub within the Hospice and also within the community with our Community Nursing Teams.
Our services are provided free of charge to those we care for.
Willen Hospice Ventures Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of Willen Hospice and is the income generating side of the charity. All profits are passed back to the charity. Our services are free to those we care for but to continue to offer that care we need to raise around £3.6million every year. Within Wilen Hospice Ventures Ltd there are 9 charity shops, Events & Fundraising teams, and a Lottery team who work together with our community to raise the vital funds needed.
