Hospice of The Good Shepherd are the local hospice for West Cheshire, Ellesmere Port and Deeside. This is the place where for the last 35 years their amazing doctors, nurses and volunteers have looked after the people that matter to us most, when they need it most. It’s only through thoughtful donations and other magnificent fundraising efforts that they are able to keep doing what they do so well; helping individuals with an end-of-life diagnosis, and their families, get the most from the last chapter of their lives. Services include a ten-bedded in-patient unit and a Living Well outpatient support centre which delivers specialist support designed to enable patients to live at home as well as they can for as long as they can. They also deliver specialist bereavement support which includes the ‘Reflect’ child counselling service which supports bereaved children and young adults aged 4-18. It is here that the hospice doctors of tomorrow come to learn what it is to care for patients and families at their most frightened and vulnerable, and how to excel at doing so.

Hope House Children’s Hospices support more than 750 local families who are either caring for a terminally ill child, or whose child has died. It costs £7.5 million every year to run our services. Approximately two month’s income comes from statutory sources and for the other 10 months of the year we are dependent on public support. Our ambition is to raise an additional £2.5 million each year to make sure we reach every child, mum, dad, brother and sister who needs our help in this area.
