Your local hospice needs your support
Together for Hospice represents 26 hospice and specialist palliative care providers nationwide and exists to support and enable these frontline services to fundraise collectively at a national level.
Our annual on-street collection Hospice Sunflower Days, has been cancelled for the second year in a row and COVID-19 continues to have a devastating impact on Hospices and their ability to fundraise to support vital frontline services across Ireland. Funds raised through the virtual sunflower garden will go directly to your chosen hospice.
Hospices nationwide need to raise approximately €20million each year, with existing voluntary hospices receiving differing levels of state funding ranging from 58% state funded up to 90%. Some homecare services receive no state funding. Despite this, demand for services continues to grow and in 2018 Hospice and specialist palliative homecare providers across Ireland cared for approximately 15,000 patients and made over 70,000 homecare visits.
We know it has been a difficult year for families and communities across Ireland and we are incredibly grateful for all donations, small or large.
