Welcome to Love Your Local Hospice
Love Your Local Hospice brings together 16 hospices from across the West Midlands in a single voice to increase understanding of our care.
Each year, our 16 hospices care for more than 26,000 adults and support 1,500 children who have terminal illnesses. We also provide care, support and practical help for their families.
Your local hospice is providing tailor-made care at people’s homes, in the community, at health centres and at hospices across the West Midlands. We offer specialist care to meet the specific needs of every person we support.
But we can’t do it alone. Did you know it costs around £80 million for our 16 hospices to provide that care? And did you know that all these hospices need voluntary donations to continue to give that care?
We are hugely helped by volunteers who each year give up to 800,000 hours to our 16 hospices. Whether it is making a cup of tea for a visitor, shaking a collecting tin at a supermarket, helping in a shop or café or providing administrative support, our volunteers are a fantastic group of enthusiastic and skilled people.
Every day your local hospice is making a huge difference to families in your neighbourhood – and you could be part of that difference. To find out more about how you can be at the heart of your local hospice care please click on the logo of the hospice closest to where you live.
