Building your new Hospice

We are building your new Hospice

Demand for our services is at an all-time high and there is an urgent need for additional end of life care in our area. To be able to help everyone that needs us, both now and in the future, we are building a new Hospice for you, our local community.

At a cost of £16 million, the new purpose-built Hospice will be larger, better equipped and offer a range of new and improved facilities that will allow us to help tens of thousands more people. To fund this exceptional project we have launched a special fundraising appeal to raise £6 million. If you can help us with this, we should love to hear from you.

The new hospice will replace our existing Hospice, much of which was built over 90 years ago, and is sadly no longer fit for purpose. During the building works we are continuing to provide our full range of services, just from specially adapted temporary accommodation.

Your new purpose-built Hospice will offer not just more space and facilities, enabling us to help many more people each year, it will allow us to offer greater levels of comfort, privacy and dignity to patients and their families, loved ones and carers. Overall, we anticipate that the new Hospice will allow us to help 40% more people annually than we are currently able to.

In April 2023 we received full planning permission, in Summer 2023 all services, staff and volunteers relocated to various temporary sites, including our In-Patient Unit, which has moved to a specially adapted building in Camberley. In August 2023 we held a series of commemorative events at the Hospice and in September 2023 enabling works started on site in Farnham. The main building works will commence in Spring 2024 and be completed towards the end of 2025. And we shall open the new Hospice in early 2026. In the meantime, all our services continue, but from temporary locations in our catchment area.

How can you help?

The new Hospice is urgently required yet the decision to build was not taken lightly. We have planned for this project for many years, allocating £10 million in reserves to the project, however this leaves £6 million to raise.  This £6 million target is above and beyond the millions of pounds we continue to have to raise each year to fund our services. It’s an extraordinary challenge but we have already made huge inroads. Thanks to the support of grant giving Trusts and Foundations, and some visionary individuals we have already achieved half of our target. 

We sincerely hope our loyal supporters and our local community will rise to the occasion and support our capital fundraising appeal. With your help we can succeed.
