Over the last 30 years Northern Ireland Hospice has cared for several thousand people with a terminal illness in Somerton House, Belfast. Our building however is old and no longer fit for purpose. The walls of our Victorian building are damp and crumbling, there is only one bathroom and sixteen patients share one shower.
Our vision is a new hospice on the Somerton site with 18 single en-suite rooms, each opening out onto newly landscaped gardens allowing for privacy, dignity and care of the highest quality in the last days of life.
We need your support to urge the Northern Ireland Executive to contribute £2.5 million to build a new hospice and help make this vision a reality.
This is Our Hour of Need. With your support we can make it happen.
