Severn Hospice gives specialist care and support free of charge to families across Shropshire and Mid Wales who are living with an incurable illness.

"We support families through the good days and bad days because we believe that when cure is no longer possible, care is. Since 1989, we have given free care and support to more than 27,000 patients and their loved ones during their time of greatest need. We now help more than 2,800 local people every year.

Our hospice is part of health services offered to people living in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and Mid Wales but we are not part of the NHS. We are a completely independent charity, having to raise around two-thirds of our running costs.

All of the care we provide to thousands of people every year is only possible thanks to the generous support we receive from the communities we serve. Our services are funded through a combination of kind donations from local people, fundraising activities, our lottery and retail departments, gifts in people’s wills and grants from the NHS."
