Hospice at Home West Cumbria

Project Overview

Hospice at Home West Cumbria provides high quality, palliative and end of life care to people living in West Cumbria.

They were awarded £63,564.70 for their Family and Bereavement Services project which will deliver a range of emotional wellbeing and bereavement services for adults who have a life limiting illness, and support for their carers and families.

Support will be delivered through carefully developed individualised plans. Service-users may benefit from receiving a number of different types of support including one-to-one sessions which enable people to talk through worries, concerns, and anxieties; group sessions for individuals to talk with others in similar circumstances, and to give and receive support; and complementary therapies to provide a soothing period away from challenging times.

Hospice at Home West Cumbria must raise over £1.2 million each year to maintain and develop its services.  Less than a quarter of their annual income comes from the NHS and therefore the remainder needs to be raised from voluntary donations, fundraising activities, shops and legacies.

“We are incredibly grateful to the Allerdale GDF Community Partnership for helping us to provide hospice support services to more patients and their families. Family and Bereavement Services and Complementary Therapies make a huge difference to the lives of those affected by palliative illness and we are thrilled that Allerdale GDF Community Partnership recognise the importance of this work.”

– Claire Jenkinson, Family and Bereavement Services Team Leader
