About the Hospice
Halton Haven Hospice provides specialist palliative care, completely free of charge, to people from Halton and surrounding areas.
We cannot add days to life but we can add life to days.
We care for those who are living with life-limiting conditions. Control of symptoms and pain is paramount, as well as dealing with psychological, social and spiritual problems. The goal of the specialist palliative care we provide is the achievement of the best quality of life for patients and their families.
Each year it costs approximately £2.5 million to keep the Hospice open. We only receive around half of this money from statutory sources, leaving a shortfall of approximately £1.25 million which we must find each year. It is only thanks to the support of local people and organisations that we are able to raise this money and continue offering our services to our local community.
