Shakespeare Hospice – 1st Birthday Celebrations – 7th March 2014
2014 is the 15th anniversary year of The Shakespeare Hospice. We took our first patients on 24th February 1999. We have a Day Hospice, Hospice at Home team and Family Support Service, which between them have supported over 3,500 people in the last 15 years.
Our first shop, in Stratford upon Avon, opened that August and since then our retail side has grown to 7 shops, Wellesbourne being the most recent to open last year.
Also last year we launched a new service, our Children and Young People’s Service. This has four areas, giving support to children who are bereaved or facing loss, helping young carers, providing transitional care – i.e. Day Hospice care for 16 – 24 year olds with a life limiting illness – and offering volunteering and work experience placements to young people.
If you need any more information about the Hospice or our shops please get in touch.
