Barnsley Hospice provides specialist palliative care for hundreds of local people each year, completely free of charge.
We are a charity – our care is free for patients but not free to provide.
We care for patients at home, in the community and at the hospice.
We care for patients with all life-limiting illnesses – not just cancer.
We care for patients in all areas of Barnsley.
We support patients’ families and those close to them.
Over 300 volunteers give nearly 60, 000 hours of their time to the hospice every year.
The Inpatient Unit is open 24 hours a day each day of the year.
Most patients are discharged home from the Inpatient Unit, about 47% end their days at the hospice.
The hospice has 9 shops including a furniture shop.
We hold a drop in for patients and their carers on Wednesday from 10am-3pm
