We're building a new hospice for our community

St Wilfrid’s Hospice has served its local community for over 30 years. However, to continue providing our specialist care we urgently need to build a new purpose-built Hospice, a dream-building which will enable us to support our local community for the next 30 years and beyond.

Why a new hospice?

Referrals to the Hospice continue to increase. When we first opened in 1987 we received 188 referrals, in 2017-18 there were 888.

We serve one of the oldest populations in England. In 2016 in Chichester alone, 27% were aged 65+ compared with the national average of 18%. This is set to increase to 36% by 2036.

Our current building and its site are now too small to meet the current or future need for our services and the quality of care we provide is now under threat. We urgently need to build a new Hospice.

Your new Hospice

A new Hospice will enable us to create a 'dream-building' with the space and modern facilities to enable us to meet the growing and changing needs of people in our area living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, now and for years to come.
