Our Services are free of charge to all patients and their loved ones. We need to raise over £7 million every year to provide outstanding Hospice care to the local community.

COVID Update

Hospice in the Weald is remaining up to date on the current outbreak of COVID and continues to follow advice from Public Heath England and the NHS. We remain open for patients and those important to them, with some changes to accommodate social distancing and other safety measures.

Visitors continue to be welcome on the In-Patient Ward – patients may designate visitors and individual circumstances are taken into account for each family.

Cottage Hospice is being kept as a ‘COVID free site’, and we are testing all patients and visitors for COVID before they are admitted to Cottage Hospice. The Family Caregiver model is in place at Cottage Hospice, meaning patients are cared for by their loved ones.

Hospice Outreach Service is operating as normal, supporting patients via telephone calls and visits. The Counselling & Support Service is offering counselling via video calls.

​Hospice Day Service has been temporarily paused in order to keep everyone safe and we are pleased to have launched Virtual Hospice Day Service.

Volunteers are working from home, but are returning to our buildings where it is safe to do so. Shop Volunteers are also returning to our shops. Volunteers provide vital support to us, so we look forward to welcoming everyone back.

Members of the workforce are working from home where possible, however our buildings continue to be COVID secure so that staff that cannot work from home can still complete the essential work that they do.

We have a robust plan in place to help and support patients or family members exhibiting symptoms of COVID and are providing our workforce with protective equipment as required. Regular testing is available for the whole workforce and testing is available for staff, volunteers, patients and those important to them if needed.

All of our Charity Shops are open Monday to Saturday, 10am – 4pm.
