Queenscourt Hospice is a local charity that provides support for the people of Southport, Formby and West Lancs. We care for patients with serious illnesses, enabling them to achieve the best possible quality of life at each new stage. We help to do this both in the Hospice and at Home through our in-patient unit, Queenscourt Connect and Queenscourt at Home services.
You can find out more about all of the services we provide on this website, as well catching up on hospice news, reading about our latest fundraising events much more...
It’s that time of year when we invite you to dust off your walking shoes, gather your friends and relatives together, and participate in this fantastic fun filled evening, all to raise money for Queenscourt Hospice.
You really can make a difference by taking part! Last year we had around 900 ladies walking and through their sponsorship an amazing £46,000 went directly to help our patients and their families.
We are now taking online bookings for Star Trekk too, so taking part has never been more easy! You can find out more and sign up on the Star Trekk page and if walking isn't for you why not check out some of our other Events.
On the 16th of May we are opening a brand new Queenscourt Shop in Churchtown, Southport. The shop will sell a variety of items from clothes, shoes and accessories, to toys, books, games and DVDs, as well as bric-a-brac and other unique items.
We are always looking for more donations to help fill our stores, so if you're having a spring clean this year, please keep us in mind! You can drop of donations at any of our stores - to find out where they are located, and for general information, please have a look at our Shops Page.
Last year we finished work renovating our inpatient unit, modernising and redesigning our ward areas. We also build a brand new refreshment area so that family members and visitors could have somewhere to eat, drink and relax in comfort.
Renovation has continued this year as we have seen the complete redesign of our Queenscourt Connect hub allowing us to combine and improve some of our services in brand new ways. Work continues on the hospice, but there are only a few more steps to go before everything is complete! We'll have a brand new reception area and shop soon and once it's finished we'll make sure to update everyone with some new photos.
Work like this helps us to provide the best experience available to our patients and families and it would not be possible without the generous donations and fundraising we receive!
It costs over £2 million per year to run Queenscourt and we receive less than one third of our costs from the NHS. We rely on your generous donations and every year we are amazed by some of the extreme lengths people go to in order to help. Running a marathon or parachuting from a plane is not for everyone however! We also raise a lot of our money from home collection boxes, our weekly lottery and people donating unwanted gifts and clothes to our charity shops.
Another way we can raise money is through our legacies scheme which allows people to leave a gift to the hospice in their will. These donations are a huge help and allow us to be able to continue to provide all of our services for free to those who need them. If you'd like to find our more please check out our Leaving a Gift page.
We are always looking for Volunteers to help us in the Hospice as well as in our charity shops! If you think you have something to offer then please have a look at our Volunteer Vacancies page to see what roles best suit your skills.
To help run the Hospice we also have many paid staff and are often looking for more people to come and join our team. Any open positions can be found on our Vacancies page. It's updated regularly so if you can't find what your looking for, please check back again soon!
