About the Hospice
Longfield supports adults with life-limiting illness from diagnosis onwards, helping them to understand their illness, to cope better with its impact on their lives, and to live well. We support their family and carers too and provide a Hospice at Home service, enabling people in the last three months of life to stay at home, if that is their choice. Our services also include help for families to deal effectively with their grief, and education for other professionals who are looking after people at the end of life. We sum up the benefits of what we offer as ‘Living well ; Dying well ; Caring well’
All of Longfield’s services are free and most are provided at our beautiful base in Minchinhampton. Some, including Arts for Health, Fatigue & Breathlessness and Bereavement Groups, are increasingly being offered at community venues, closer to where people live. More than 80% of the charity’s income comes from the general public, through our eighteen shops, our weekly lottery, gifts in wills and a host of fundraising events and activities.
The charity employs about 130 people but is also highly dependent on volunteers. About 500 people volunteer for us each year, doing everything from cooking to driving and from gardening to helping out at our events. We are hugely grateful to every one of them.
