To support as many as we can, we offer a 24/7 advice line
We hope this makes it easier for families, carers and health professionals to speak to us about symptom management and end-of-life care. If you need us, please call 01284 766133.

Nicky's Way group sessions resume
“For the first time since our loss, we felt we were surrounded by people who were there to listen to our story."
With the ongoing pandemic meaning that Nicky’s Way has had to change the way it offers support, on July 27 and 28, a group of children and their families became the first group in over 18 months to attend one of our Nicky’s Way group sessions.
Learn how Nicky's Way can support children, young people and their families
As the Hospice works to introduce new ways of working we need those with the passion to equip communities, and the ability to provide the best care, to join us.
Some of our latest activities
St Nic's magazine
The autumn edition of our supporters’ magazine St Nic’s has been published.
Packed with news from the Hospice including fundraising stories, in this edition we also introduce Linda McEnhill who will become the Hospice’s Chief Executive Officer in December.
Hospice welcomes new Chief Executive Officer
We’re pleased to have officially welcomed our new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Linda McEnhill.
With degrees in Theology, Social Work and Hospice Leadership, Linda, who has been involved in palliative care for almost 30 years, joins us from Ardgowan Hospice in Scotland.
Since 2003, St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Wills Weeks have ensured that many in our community have been able to have a Will prepared to protect their loved ones, while raising more than £300,000 for the charity.
Our 18th annual Wills Weeks event offers our community the chance to make a Will in return for a donation to St Nicholas Hospice Care instead of paying a fee to a legal adviser.
