PROUD TO SUPPORT
Hospice in the Weald
We are working with our VitalHub UK colleagues to raise awareness and funds for Hospice in the Weald.
For over 40 years Hospice in the Weald has provided care, completely free of charge, to patients living with a terminal illness, and those important to them, throughout West Kent and Northern East Sussex. Their mission is to provide compassionate, personalised and holistic care for everyone in their community that needs their support.
Their 7 key hospice services include and in-patient ward, a newly opened Cottage Hospice, Hospice Outreach where they provide end-of-life care for patients in their own homes, a Living Well Centre, Counselling and Support services, Chaplaincy and Spiritual care, and their newest support provision for Children living with life limiting conditions.
Through each service, they empower patients and their loved ones to celebrate life, enabling them a greater sense of control, understanding and support as they navigate the challenges of their diagnosis.
This year, they are launching a Hospice service for Children, delivered in the home and through a bespoke new day service provision. This fulfils a great area of unmet need, which currently sees families having to travel long distances to receive support. For families caring for a child with a life limiting illness, the additional stress of a long journey can be incredibly challenging.
