Learn With Us/Education

The Aldridge Education Centre at Willen Hospice is an ideal venue for providing courses to professionals, carers and other stakeholders in Milton Keynes and surrounding areas.

A range of study days and courses have been devised for professionals providing palliative and end of life care to clients. We are also open to tailoring a study day to suit the needs of your organisation, if you wish to discuss this contact Marilyn David.

Our Library within the Aldridge Education Centre has a variety of reference documents and books to support your studies and provide relevant information. The team of volunteers are always willing to assist you with any queries. Contact Sue and David via email: Library@willen-hospice.org.uk

We do have rooms available for hire, however, times are limited. If you would like further information on how to book a room and costings, please contact Marilyn David.  Please view our room hire conditions here.
