for families facing terminal illness

ellenor is a charity caring for patients and their families living with a terminal illness.  We today look after 1,565 patients and their families, in their own homes in the community and in the hospice. Our care is provided thanks to the generosity of you our local community who raise the money we need to provide life changing services each year.

During the current outbreak of COVID-19 our priority is to protect our patients, their visitors, colleagues and volunteers from the spread of the infection. We would like to thank everyone for respecting the additional measures that we have introduced to keep our environment as clean as possible to protect us all.
