Help us win a grant for £25k

  • Carers and patients at Skanda Vale Hospice

Update January 2018: We won the grant! Thanks for all your votes!

With just a couple of mouse clicks you can help us win a grant for £25k.

In early 2019 we hope to increase our current inpatient respite service from ten nights each month to run 24/7/365. We will also introduce a new end of life care service.

For us to be able to introduce these new services we need to double the number of people volunteering with us.

A grant for £25k would help us to pay the wages of a clinical volunteer manager to start working with us in April 2018. This person will help to attract talented volunteer nurses and carers, give them training and inspire them to do their best.

Without this person on board, we really won’t be able to provide free end of life care and 24/7 respite to families when they need it most. The funds would also help us buy some key pieces of care equipment.
