Open day

We’re hosting a special open day at the hospice! Check out our beautiful new building and gardens, and learn more about our unique volunteering opportunities.

Join us on Thursday 30th March, from 2pm til 8pm. At Skanda Vale Hospice, Saron, Llandysul, SA44 5DY.


Amazingly, it’s been almost a year since we opened our doors to our first overnight hospice guests. There have been some beautiful moments, and some of the stories from the people we’ve helped have been quite overwhelming.

So it’s time to push things forward.

Our goal this year is to expand our current inpatient respite service from five days a month to ten. (Next year we hope to go even further, by expanding to 24/7 respite and end of life care). It might not sound much, but logistically it’s a big step, and one which will require lots more helpers and volunteers.
