Why we need your support

Birmingham Hospice provides specialist end of life care for people living with a terminal illness and for their families.

Making every moment matter for patients and their loved ones is at the heart of everything we do. We believe that everyone living with a terminal diagnosis should be able to live and die with dignity and in comfort, and access the care of their choice, whenever and wherever they want to.

Each year, after NHS funding, we need to raise £5.5 million from voluntary donations so local people can receive the vital care and support they need.

It costs around £15,000,000 to run our hospice sites each year.

Every second is crucial for a person living with a terminal diagnosis. Help them make every moment matter by supporting Birmingham Hospice today.

How your money can help us

Caring for all

With your support, 1,000 local people living with life-limiting illness can be cared for by Birmingham Hospice at any one time.

Out in your local community

Last year, our Community Team made contact with over 40,000 patients – helping to care for people in their own homes.

More than just medical care

Last year, 1,312 patients attended day services in our Living Well Centres, supporting people to live well, manage their symptoms and take part in therapeutic activities.

I’m really appreciative of what was done at the hospice for my birthday as I don’t know if I will get to celebrate another birthday with Dad. Thank you.
