Our Leckhampton Court Hospice at Home team comprises 22 staff who cover hundreds of miles each year travelling to people’s homes in Gloucester, Cheltenham and Tewkesbury. They take the specialist care skills, ethos and practical support of our hospice out into people’s own homes.
Not only do we treat more conditions than any other UK charity in our hospices, neurological care centres and out in the community; we also campaign to improve the lives of people living with them. We see the person, not the condition, taking time to understand the small things that help that person live the fullest life they can. Our shops, fundraising and volunteers support us to be there for people at the most difficult time of their lives.
