Organisation Description

St. Margaret’s Hospice has been at the heart of Somerset’s community for over 37 years, delivering high quality, responsive and compassionate care to patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness.
With two hospice sites; one in Yeovil and one in Taunton, as well as five community based teams caring for patients in their own homes, we continually strive to reach everyone in the community that needs our care, often during their precious last days.
St. Margaret’s Hospice is dedicated to making each day count for all of our patients and their families. We aim to ensure that they always achieve what they want; from arranging an on-site wedding and a ride on a Harley Davidson, to simply enabling a patient to pet a hedgehog for the first time.
As well as treating each patient’s symptoms and controlling pain, we care for the emotional, psychological and spiritual needs of each person with respect and sensitivity. We also offer a wide range of complementary therapies, such as aromatherapy, massage, reflexology and diversional therapy for patients.
We are absolutely reliant on the generosity of Somerset residents in giving up their time to help us fundraise the £7.5m needed annually - we do hope you will decide to join us.
