Objectives

Our primary objective is "to provide palliative care and support for those suffering from life-limiting illnesses, as well as support for their families and carers, in the boroughs of Welwyn Hatfield and Broxbourne and the District of East Hertfordshire"

The charity's long term objectives are to:

  • maintain and improve services
  • increase their availability
  • improve awareness of and access to them

We work closely with GPs and other healthcare professionals as we seek to ensure that everyone in the last year of their life is identified and referred to, and able to access, the right services to meet their needs. We seek to identify specific groups who may find it harder to access services and develop specific approaches to engage them and ensure their needs are met.

Activities

All our services are provided free of charge irrespective of social, economic, ethnic or religious background and are for the public benefit.

To achieve our long term objectives, the charity has the following enabling and facilitating programmes:

  • Income generation to provide day to day core funding
  • A major fundraising campaign to enable the charity to develop the existing clinical service model and to fund forthcoming capital requirements.
  • Workforce development and succession planning to meet the people requirements of the charity's service model.
  • property acquisition and development in┬áboth In patient and living well day service settings.
