What We Do

We are a charity based on a beautiful woodland site in Thornton just north of Liverpool. There we run our 31-bed hospice offering end-of-life care for people from Sefton, Liverpool, Knowsley, West Lancashire and occasionally further afield.

The money we receive from the NHS does not fund anything like the full cost of the care we provide. The hospice costs over £3m each year to run and so our Thornton site also acts as the base for a major fundraising operation which includes

  • Our charity shops
  • Our lottery
  • Encouraging and promoting donations
  • Running events and helping others run events for us
  • Encouraging and promoting legacies

We are proud to be a local Merseyside charity – founded here, caring for local people, and answerable to the community we serve.

We rely heavily on local people helping us as volunteers – working in our shops, maintaining our grounds, helping with fundraising, visiting patients etc. We are helped by over 200 committed volunteers but can always use more. Click here for details of opportunities for volunteering with us.
