We support adults with life-limiting illness from diagnosis onwards. We help them to understand and to cope with their illness, its impact on their lives, and support them to live well. We support family and carers too, and provide a Hospice at Home service, enabling people in the last three months of life to stay at home if that is their choice. Our services also include help for families to deal effectively with their grief, and education for other professionals who are looking after people at the end of life. We sum up the benefits of what we offer as ‘Living well; Dying well; Caring well’ 

All of Longfield’s services are free and most are provided at our beautiful base in Minchinhampton. Some, including Wellbeing Workshops, Fatigue & Breathlessness and Bereavement Groups, are increasingly being offered at community venues, closer to where people live. More than 80% of the charity’s income comes from the general public, through our twenty shops, our weekly lottery, gifts in wills and a host of fundraising events and activities. 

The charity employs around 140 people but is also highly dependent on volunteers. Over 400 people volunteer for us each year; across every department within the hospice itself, at our events and within our shops and warehouse.
