Weldmar Hospicecare is a charity that provides end of life care for people living in Dorset who need specialist support.
Their compassionate approach supports patients and their families, medically and in other ways, in the community, in their hospice and at home. All their care is free and reliant on public donations
Weldmar Hospicecare is an independent charity only working in Dorset. 25% of their funds are provided by the NHS – 75% of their funds are raised thanks to the support of their local community.
Weldmar Hospicecare cares for patients with cancer and other progressive conditions, such as motor neurone disease, who require our specialist help. They aim to ensure all patients needing end of life care in Dorset have access to excellent services delivered when and where needed whether by Weldmar, or by others supported by them. They work alongside colleagues in health and social care to ensure that they meet the individual needs of patients and their families.
All services are provided free of charge.
At Bestival, The Weld Hospice will be running their wonderful fancy dress shop to raise money for their charity!
