About Us

Southern Area Hospice Services provide invaluable care and support to patients with life limiting illnesses including Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease, HIV and Aids.  Our services are available to patients who live within the Southern Health Board region.

This high-quality care extends beyond the Hospice into the community and the hospital services.  Its aim is to enhance the quality of life for patients by responding to the physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual and social needs and supporting families and carers, thus enabling each person to live every day to the full.

Southern Area Hospice Services relies heavily on the generosity of local people and the support of our volunteers who help staff deliver services in many ways, from patient care to fundraising.

All our services are provided free of charge and we rely heavily on fundraising to enable us to care and support patients and their families. This year, with continuous increasing operating costs, we have an ambitious fundraising target of £3.2 million in order to maintain the level of care currently available. This equates to approximately £267,000 per month, £61,538 per week, £8,791per day, £366 per hour.
