HospiceCare North Northumberland

Registered Charity No 1103635

HospiceCare is the local Hospice at Home charity for North Northumberland serving a population of over 65,000. We deliver practical and emotional care and support to adults living with a terminal illness requiring palliative input and end-of-life care. We also offer support to their families and carers.

The care is delivered in the home by our specially trained Nursing team and Hospice Support Workers. Access to our Hospice at Home service is via any healthcare professional e.g. GP, District Nurse, Macmillan Nurse, or Community Matron. HospiceCare also provides Bereavement and Dementia Support services which are accessed via self-referral. There is no charge at the point of delivery for our services which will cost the Hospice around £1.4m this year. We receive an annual contribution from the NHS of around 5%, with additional funding to support people who are discharged from Hospital via Fast Tracked services. The rest we have to raise from fundraising, community donations, trusts and foundations, legacies and our charity shops.
