North London Hospice is a multi-faith hospice striving to provide the highest quality palliative and end of life care and support for patients and their loved ones living with a life limiting illness. This not only includes inpatient services but also providing health and wellbeing therapies and care in the communities of Barnet, Haringey and Enfield.

The charity is also the only hospice in North London who serve terminally ill adults in these boroughs, both within a clinical environment and in a patient's own home if that is their wish. This means their service is absolutely paramount.

Their greatest achievement this year has been securing funding for its Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STP) until 2021. This funding and unit has allowed North London Hospice to double their community nurse team and therefore increase their outreach to further parts of the community.

How donations make an impact…

  • £15 will fund a bed in their inpatient unit for one hour.

  • £50 will pay for a weeks worth of equipment for one of four nurses to provide practical care to people in their own homes and wellbeing centre.

  • £125 will find one of their nurses for a day.

You might be surprised to learn...

  • Each year they care for over 2,500 people in their community.

  • Their care and service is free of charge but costs are £13 million a year.

  • 95% of care takes place within the community.

  • They have 900 volunteers who help them at the hospice in Finchley, the wellbeing centre in Enfield and across the community.

  • It costs £750 for a patient in the hospice for one night!
