The continued support of Trusts and Foundations are crucial in the work we are doing to support individuals and families affected by life-limiting illnesses.

Every single grant, large and small, makes a world of difference to the people in our care.

Delivering the highest quality care across Birmingham and Sandwell costs money – more than £9million per year – and we simply couldn’t do it without the generous support of Trusts and Foundations.

And that’s not all. To enable us to ensure we deliver the best possible care, we also work on a range of exciting service development projects.

Equipment/Items

Necessary equipment and items to enhance support for people in our care. This could be anything from a mattress, to a vehicle which could transport blood samples, wheelchairs, or the people we support.

Training for Care Homes

£190,746 - Working collaboratively with care homes to improve patient experience during end of life care. Providing regular training and support in care homes will allow for person-centred care. We have so far secured £111,530 towards this project.

Extension of Bereavement Services

£105,000 - The development of our bereavement service in our local communities to provide counselling for anyone struggling to cope with the loss of a loved one. We have secured full project funding towards this.

Inpatient Unit Bathroom Refurbishment

£43,240 - The vital refurbishment of our Inpatient bathroom and sluice room facilities, to improve accessibility and provide crucial support for those in our care. We have secured full project funding towards this.

Patient Transport Vehicle

£36,500 - The urgent replacement of one of our patient transport vehicles. We provide a vital transportation service to ensure that patients are able to attend our Day Hospice facility, whatever their circumstances. We are proud to announce that we have now secured full funding for this project, thank you to everyone who has contributed.

Homelessness

£81,160 - To support the homeless population of Birmingham and Solihull, who currently have little or no access to palliative care. Our aim is to also deliver external training to frontline staff to ensure that they are better equipped to manage homeless individuals who have a life-limiting condition. We are proud to announce that we have now secured full funding for this project, thank you to everyone who has contributed.

Support at Home

£109,958 - Continuation of our volunteer-led service that offers friendly companionship, a listening ear and assistance with attending appointments for our patients on weekdays, weekends and evenings.
