Willen Hospice provides specialist care for patients and their loved ones in the local community who are affected by life-limiting illness.
As a registered charity, our compassionate support is completely free of charge, helping people in and around Milton Keynes who may be going through the toughest time of their lives. Through our care, information and advice, we improve patients’ wellbeing, so they can meet the end of their life with peace and dignity.
Our expert teams work around the clock to provide a wide range of services, including treatment both in the Hospice and in patients’ homes. Therapeutic services, such as physiotherapy, art therapy and counselling, are offered as part of a personal care plan we design for each patient. Family and friends are looked after too, through our social care team, carers groups and the bereavement support we offer.
To provide all of this care for our community costs more than £11 every minute. We only receive 15% of our costs from regular NHS funding. That’s why we rely on the generosity of local people to help us raise £4.5 million every year, to make sure we can keep our services running and keep them free of charge.
Can you help? We aim to make fundraising as fun as possible, so keep an eye out for events, challenges and volunteering opportunities throughout the year.
