"Accessible and free of charge care for those with a life-limiting illness"

About Us

The aim of Florence Nightingale Hospice is to provide a first class specialist palliative care service which is accessible and free of charge to those with a life-limiting illness.

Hospice care is all about the person being more than a patient and finding ways to improve quality of life through symptom control, pain relief, emotional and spiritual support. Families and close friends are also involved as they are often central to the well-being of those in our care.

Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity needs to raise over £750,000 this year to ensure the continued funding of local in-patient and at-home palliative care services, for many more years to come.

Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity has a strong identity which it shares with its staff, volunteers, donors and supporters. We have tried to put into words our purpose, along with the values and beliefs we wish to conduct ourselves.


To provide comprehensive care and support, through inpatient and at-home services, for local people and families affected by life-limiting illness.


To persuade caring people with a social conscience to donate time and money to FNHC as their charity of choice.


A caring, compassionate, committed, ethical and honest organisation that raises money for the good of others.


To provide a high quality, efficient and professional charitable service for the benefit of the Hospice and the local community.

To treat people with respect, fairness and dignity and to be informed if this is not the case.

As a not for profit organisation, to minimise administrative costs and maximise income wherever possible, ensuring that every penny is wisely spent.
