Highland Hospice is the only hospice caring for adults in the Highlands of Scotland.  Every year, through inpatient care, day therapy services, bereavement support and by providing expert advice to GPs and community nurses across the region, our staff and volunteers support around 700 patients and their families who are living with a terminal illness.

We are currently nearing the end of our Project Build Appeal which aims to raise £4.5million to rebuild our Inpatient Unit on Bishops Road in Inverness.  This new building, which is due to open in November, will double the size of our Inpatient Unit, upgrade our Day Therapies Centre, provide a quiet sanctuary room and increase space for physiotherapy, occupational therapy and bereavement support.

It will have more single rooms and improved family accommodation, and will allow us to develop innovative virtual hospice services which will help extend the reach of hospice care throughout the Highlands.

Highland Hospice is a charity.  No charge is made to our patients or their families.  We receive approximately a third of our funding from the NHS and rely on the support of the public for the remainder of our income.  Each year we host a full calendar of fundraising events, as well as working with individuals, groups, companies and trusts who wish to support us in their own unique way.  Every penny raised in the Highlands contributes to the delivery of services in the Highlands.

Right now, we need the support of the Highland community now more than ever.  Our Project Build Appeal is running in addition to the regular fundraising needed to provide our day-to-day services.  Our ambition is to provide the highest level of care to patients and their families across the Highlands and your support at this time and in the future is hugely important to us.
