About Hospice in the Weald

Hospice in the Weald is a well-established local charity serving the communities in West Kent and northern East Sussex for 40 years.

The people in these communities know that we are an outstanding hospice offering an extensive range of services. Those who know us realise we are, and will remain, outstanding because we continually strive for excellence in all we do.

The hospice movement is a very British success and Hospice in the Weald is the best of the best. We are able to provide world class hospice palliative care because of the people who make up our workforce, our staff and volunteers, who themselves are enabled by the generosity of the people in the communities we serve.

Hospice in the Weald is a registered charity and not part of the NHS. We rely on support from the community we serve, to enable us to develop and deliver our services.


Happy Child

Only 11% of the funding required to deliver our services, comes from the NHS. We measure our success not by the amount of money coming in, but by the high quality of care we are able to provide for everyone in our community living with a terminal illness, and for those important to them.

Our amazing fundraising team work incredibly hard to put on a full calendar of events every year and we will ask you to help out at two events per year. There is something for everyone and helping out is a great way to meet other staff and volunteers from across the organisation, but above all it is fun!

Our team are dedicated to providing a range of care and support for people with life-limiting conditions, ensuring that they receive the care they need, when they need it, within their community.

Jess’ Story

“When my mum, Clare, was diagnosed with motor neurone disease she was just 53 years old and I was in my final year of my A-Levels. The diagnosis was as devastating as you might imagine. Throughout it all, Hospice in the Weald was very important to us. Every part of the care is designed to support patients and their families.

We shared meals with other people who were also experiencing challenging times. It sounds strange, but it really helps to spend time with other people who are going through similar things. Having these precious moments and spending time with Mum was very special and meant I was able to be her daughter, not just her carer.”

“One moment you might be enjoying a family day out and the next, two of the most important people in your life need round the clock care. That’s what happened to us…”
