Local charities join forces to improve hospice care


Two local charities providing end of life services join forces this month. St David’s Hospice and Hospice At Home Gwynedd and Anglesey have completed a merger which will help improve end of life care services for the people of North West Wales.

St David’s Hospice, based in Llandudno provides Inpatient and Day therapy care to adult patients across North West Wales and Hospice At Home Gwynedd and Anglesey, a neighbouring charity cares for people through the Hospice at Home service, the Hafan Menai Day Hospice in Bangor and also provides community complementary therapy clinics.

Hospices deliver a wide range of holistic care, which includes medical care, spiritual and emotional support and also wellbeing. This care extends to families and carers with practical and emotional care, such as bereavement counselling.

The aim of the merger is to ensure that the people of North West Wales receive the very best palliative and end of life care. Further plans and development along with a new logo will be announced soon.

St David’s Hospice’s Chief Executive, Trystan Pritchard said:

“Both charities have long had similar ambitions to ensure that everyone who needs hospice care in North West Wales is able to receive it. We know there is a postcode lottery for services in some areas and by joining forces we can ensure that we are better placed to deliver on these aims.”

We have ambitious plans across the counties of Conwy, Gwynedd and Anglesey and we look forward to discussing these with our local communities and continuing to deliver excellent services for the future.”

Both charities provide care free of charge, relying on fundraising and donations to meet the bulk of their running costs. The support of the local community is essential to ensure people who need it get the care they deserve at a time in their lives they need it most.

Trystan Pritchard said:

“The most important aspect of our work is that it is only for the benefit of local communities. We rely on the public for over 80% of our funding and in an age where the charity sector has rightly come under scrutiny, we can offer our supporters a guarantee that every penny they donate will be spent locally on helping to deliver services that they can access as close as possible to their own community.”

We are extremely grateful to our supporters for their loyalty and commitment over the years. It is they who have made both charities successful so far and we hope to continue to work alongside them into the future.”
