Trusts and Foundations

Here at St Vincent’s Hospice, we are extremely grateful for the fantastic support we receive from charitable trusts and foundations.

Grant funding helps us provide our ongoing services, ensuring we can continue offering the highest quality care to patients and their families from across the neighbouring communities of Renfrewshire and North Ayrshire.

We are hugely grateful for every trust and foundation donation we receive and the huge impact that support has on our ability to continue to provide our services, free of charge, to our patients when they need us most.

If you are looking for inspiration to support us, here are just a few of the amazing things we have been able to achieve thanks to our generous trust and foundation supporters:

  • Essential funding for Inpatient care – ensuring our doctors and nurses can provide the very highest standard of care, free of charge, to patients in their final days.
  • Funding vital Community Nurse Specialist hours, supporting individuals who wish to spend their final moments in the comfort of their own homes.
  • The redevelopment of our Community Hub into a dedicated home for our Day Hospice service.
  • Visits from Music in Hospitals and Care musicians to perform at Day Services and in the Inpatients Unit.
  • Improvements to our fire alarm system, ensuring patient, visitor, and staff safety throughout the Hospice.
