Why your support matters
Loneliness and social isolation can deeply affect people’s physical and mental health and have a significant impact on their quality of life. Sadly, for those living with a chronic or life-limiting illness and their carers, the effects can be even greater.
They might find themselves shut off from their community due to a new diagnosis or worsening of their condition, feel like others will not be able to relate to their situation and in some cases, feel like they have nothing left to live for.
At a time when government funding to hospices is contracting, the need for our services is increasing, which is why we have launched an appeal to raise vital funds to expand our community outreach.
