Who Are We?
Hospice Aid is a unique UK based charity delivering much needed grants to UK hospices.
We wish to make it clear that Hospice Aid UK, registered charity 1092575, has no connection whatsoever with a fraudulent company of the same name which attempted to fundraise illegally and was closed down in 2002. Read more...
Hospice AID UK is the only UK charity which supports all hospices who apply to us with every penny spent staying in the UK. We give support where and when it's needed.
There is no charge for hospice care and they rely heavily on public funding. We have provided support in all types of ways, whether to help buy specialist equipment, cover hospice running costs, supply emergency funding or in other areas that can be difficult to get funding for.
We are driven by our determination to increase awareness of how reliant hospices are for funding, but we couldn't do this without public support.
A donation, however large or small, would mean we could help a larger number of hospices and reach more of the people that need it. Hospice Aid UK delivers the money where it is needed, when it is needed.
Your help today will help someone tomorrow
Hospices throughout the country face the daily task of caring for those who sadly have little time left with us in the most dignified and compassionate way possible, at the same time offering respect and comfort to both the patient and their loved ones around them.
They offer a very special place of comfort, tranquility and peacefulness.
Help us help them.
Emergency Funding Update
We pride ourselves on responding speedily to requests for emergency funding outside our usual grant-giving cycle wherever possible. Read the stories of 3 wonderful hospices whom we have recently helped:
Isabel Hospice, Hertfordshire
The hospital to which Isabel Hospice is attached is currently being rebuilt, and the hospice has lost access to a number of vital medical services. Hospice Aid was delighted to be able to provide emergency funding for an ECG machine at Isabel's in-patient unit, which will save terminally ill patients a 30 mile round journey to another hospital.
"We are hugely grateful to you for responding so quickly to our urgent request", wrote their Deputy Director of Fundraising. "The support you have given really will have an impact on patient care... the speed with which you responded to our request was amazing".

Demelza Hospice Care for Children
"On behalf of the children, young people and their families here at Demelza, I would like to thank you very much for your amazing donation of £2,500 to fund our Tiz Music Festival. This is a fantastic amount of money and we are so incredibly grateful for your support. Because of this support we can make the festival an amazing experience for our teenagers, allowing many of them to enjoy such an event for the first and only time in their lives. This event gives our young people the opportunity to live like other teenagers and access events without having to have the support of their parents, giving a much-needed degree of independence as well as fun and laughter". Senior Trusts Fundraiser, Demelza Hospice Care.

Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People
"Thank you so much for your very quick response to our urgent request. It is wonderful to deal with someone who actually understands and respects the need for speed and can respond so quickly - it is an enormous help to us when we need it. The donation that you sent of £1,995 will be used to purchase a specialist bed for a young patient who is coming to stay at the hospice for 6 months. We are very grateful because, without your grant, we would have been a specialist bed short for the 6 months of his stay". Appeal Manager, Rainbows Hospice.

We love being able to help the UK's wonderful hospices, but we couldn't do it without the help of our generous supporters. If you want to help us help more hospices, please make a donation today. Thank you!
