Charitable trusts

Grants provided by trusts and foundations can make a real difference for the people we care for at John Taylor Hospice by funding services, paying for much-needed equipment and helping us develop new ways of care.

A grant from the Albert Hunt Charitable Trust helped fund our acupuncture service which reduces symptoms and side effects for patients. Awards for All funded our Friday Social Group which provides a vital source of social interaction for older people experiencing isolation.

If you are part of a grant-making organisation, or are aware of any trusts or foundations which might be willing to support our services, please contact our Service Development and Data System Manager Gez Scandrett at [email protected] or 0121 728 6740.

What our patients think

“I’d have really struggled without them”

“They’ve been ever so good to me and that’s why I wanted to fundraise and do something to help just like they’ve helped me.”

Philomena Sharpe

“The impact they had will never be forgotten”

“The community nurses were so helpful and they’re lovely people. They put my mind at rest and it’s such a comfort to know you’re not on your own.”

Jackie Day

“An angel sent into my life”

“I can’t thank Angie (patient and family support worker) enough for everything she’s done for us. She’s so reliable and professional – a wonderful person. She took away all these worries and was there for me in my time of need.”

Patricia Smith-Evans

“I’ve really enjoyed it”

“The FAB Programme has helped me to get fitter and my walking is better. Everyone is really nice at the hospice, they’re friendly and they’re good company. I’d recommend it to anyone who is in a similar situation to me.”
