Trusts and foundations

Trust and Foundation funding is a vital source of income for Sobell House. With rising costs and an increased demand on our services, we rely on this income more than ever before.

We are so grateful to the Trusts and Foundations who choose to support the work of the hospice, working with us to help people facing life-limiting illness and their families.

We rely on this generosity to enable many of our key services to continue. Funding for services such as our transport and bereavement services, as well as specialist physiotherapy equipment and vital building work, means the hospice can continue to support those in our local community in the best way possible, and provide person-centred care.

Becky, one of our specialist occupational therapists, shares how support from Trusts and Foundations has made a difference to our patients, by providing the funding for specialist rehabilitation cushions:

“Often, due to disease or treatment, the people we see are unable to sit comfortably. This can mean that they spend most of their time needing to lie down, which has a significant impact on their ability to do what they enjoy most – such as socialising, getting out in a car, engaging in a hobby like reading, puzzles or crafting, or even being able to eat. Being able to provide a specialist cushion that we have assessed for can make all the difference to someone’s comfort. Sitting down can allow someone to do what matters most to them and be themselves again, which has a huge impact on physical and mental wellbeing.”

If you are from a grant-making Trust or Foundation and are interested in partnering with us, please contact Becca Thomson, our Trust Fundraiser: becca.thomson@sobellhospice.org or 01865 857007.
