About us

Cornwall Hospice Care is a Cornish charity which provides end of life support for people with terminal illnesses.  Our vision is for all people living with terminal illness in Cornwall to be able to access the care and support they may need at the time and in the place that is right for them and their families

Our Clinical teams and volunteers support patients and their families, carers and friends at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice in St Austell, St Julia’s Hospice in Hayle, through our community services and where appropriate, in people’s homes and local care homes.  We also provide outpatient lymphoedema support and our education team offer training to external organisations.

It costs us over £6 million each year to provide this specialist care.  Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from the NHS with the remainder being raised through the generous support of people in Cornwall, who leave us legacies, support our fundraising events, play our lottery, and visit our shops.

Our 26 retail stores make up the biggest charity retail chain in Cornwall, stretching from Bude in the north to Penzance in the far west.  They represent the business end of our charity, contributing £720,000 in the last financial year to the care we provide.
