Give a family the gift of Time Together

At Longfield we believe every person in Gloucestershire who is touched by a life-limiting illness should be able to get free hospice care. We are a charity which relies on voluntary donations for 85% of our income.

Currently hospices in Gloucestershire only help around half of people referred to them for end of life care at home. But with your support we can do our bit to change this.

That’s why we are launching the Time Together campaign to raise enough money for us to provide 20,000 hours of Hospice at Home care a year in Gloucestershire. 

You can help to ensure more specialist hospice care is delivered to people in need now.

When Celia Hicks Beach was told her lung cancer was terminal, the Hospice at Home care available from Longfield meant she could leave hospital and return to her beloved family farm where she died peacefully with her loved ones and family pets around her.

“When she became very poorly and we knew she was nearing the end, the Longfield staff were amazing as they just gave Mum the space to talk through her worries and concerns. On the day she died, they were there not just to care for Mum but to support all of us too.” - Lucy Hicks Beach, Celia's daughter.

Longfield’s Hospice at Home service is vitally important as it enables people who are nearing the end of their life to be at home with their loved ones and familiar things around them.

Our skilled and compassionate staff offer not just hands-on care but also emotional support and a listening ear to patients and their family and friends and our care continues after the person has died through our bereavement support services.  We rely on your help to fund the majority of our work and without more support, we cannot increase the hours of care we can provide.  Please help us deliver more specialist hospice care to people in need by donating to Longfield’s Time Together campaign.

How to donate:

It costs up to £60 an hour to provide free Hospice at Home care to someone.
