Imagine a time where people facing death, dying, grief and loss are at the centre of a care system. A place where support is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. A time where individuals receive compassionate end of life care, completely free of charge. A gift in your Will could help make this a reality. 

Many people think that hospices are all about dying. We disagree. We believe that end of life care is about helping people live every moment to the full in comfort and dignity. It’s about creating a space whether in our Hospice or at home where precious memories are created.

Compassion sits at the heart of everything we do – because we understand kindness and understanding can often make the biggest difference of all. Of course, we also maintain the highest professional standards, and retained our outstanding rating from the Care Quality Commission in our latest inspection.

A gift in your Will could enable us to build upon this excellence and help fulfil our vision of ensuring: 

“Our communities will have the best care and support before, during and after death.” 

As someone who may have been touched by the care of Princess Alice Hospice or know friends or family to have befitted from our care, you will understand that we cannot prevent death. But you will also know that we do everything we can to help those in need, live the best of their days for the rest of the days. Sadly, we know we’re not reaching everyone who needs us and there is a huge disparity in end-of-life care experiences. Whatever your connection or experience, you believe like us that everyone deserves, care, compassion and dignity in their last months, weeks, days, and hours of life.

With your Will, we will help to ensure more people receive compassionate end of life care. Your gift will enable us to adapt and develop our services whilst working in partnership with our colleagues in health and social care to deliver seamless, coordinated care and support for people across all services. And, with rising operational costs and NHS budgets continuing to come under strain, your gift will help fill the ever-widening funding gap we face. Right now, less than a quarter of funding comes from the NHS. So, it will come as no surprise to you just how reliant we are on gifts like yours. In fact, over a third of our funding comes from gifts in Wills. Without them we wouldn’t be able to care for one in three of the people we help. 

Gifts in Wills are vital to our future. Knowing kind supporters like you are including Princess Alice Hospice in your Will means so much. Put simply, your gift helps to ensure we are there when we’re needed most, today, tomorrow, and always.
