How we are funded

How much we need

The annual running costs of Willen Hospice are around £5.9 million. We’re grateful to have about a quarter of these costs met by the NHS, but the entire remaining amount needs to be raised from the local community.  Our services are free to those we care for, but to continue to offer that care we need to raise around £4.7million every year, equating to around £9 a minute. Without the support, dedication and generosity of people who help us to raise these funds, we wouldn’t be able to provide the care we do.
