Queenscourt Hospice is a local charity that provides support for the people of Southport, Formby and West Lancs. We care for patients with serious illnesses, enabling them to achieve the best possible quality of life at each new stage. We help to do this both in the Hospice and at Home through our in-patient unit, Queenscourt Connect and Queenscourt at Home services.
You can find out more about all of the services we provide on this website, as well catching up on hospice news, reading about our latest fundraising events much more...
Having your Will written professionally can give you great peace of mind. This April you can use any of the participating local solicitors who have signed up to Queenscourt’s Will Month and you can then enjoy the added feel-good factor of supporting your local hospice.
Our participating solicitors who have all given up their time free of charge to help Queenscourt are listed on the link below. Please choose one and call them directly to book a free appointment during our Will Month.
Instead of paying your solicitor’s fee, you will be invited to make a donation to Queenscourt. The suggested donation is £90 for a basic Will or £135 for a pair of basic mirror Wills or £40 for a Codicil to an existing Will. (Please note, your solicitor will advise you that any complex or additional instruction may be charged to you at their usual rate)
Demand for hospice care in Southport, Formby and West Lancashire continues to grow each year, and this is only made possible by the generosity of local people. Although there is no obligation to remember Queenscourt Hospice in your will, leaving a legacy / gift in your will is a wonderful way to continue to support a cause you feel deeply about and will help us continue to care for those who need it for many years to come. To find out more about this, please take a look at our Legacies Page.
We are always on the lookout for volunteers to help at the hospice but right now we are especially in need of anyone who would like to work in our kitchens. The kitchen is open between 9am and 6pm, 7 days a week and as a volunteer you would be helping to support our team of cooks by taking on general kitchen tasks to help lighten the load.
Food and nutrition have a very important part to play in the care of our patients, and working in the kitchens guarantees you are making a real difference to their lives. Any contribution, whether it be 2 hours or 5, would be very much appreciated.
Queenscourt supporters of all ages and fitness levels are invited to join together to raise money for the Hospice. We guarantee you a night to remember! Whether you are walking in memory of a loved one or simply to help Queenscourt to continue providing the services that it does for future generations, you can rest assured that your sponsorship money makes a huge difference to our patients and their families.
If you sign up before the 31st of March it costs just £12 to take part! To book online and find out more please check out our Star Trekk page!
We are always looking for Volunteers to help us in the Hospice as well as in our charity shops! If you think you have something to offer then please have a look at our Volunteer Vacancies page to see what roles best suit your skills.
To help run the Hospice we also have many paid staff and are often looking for more people to come and join our team. Any open positions can be found on our Vacancies page. It's updated regularly so if you can't find what your looking for, please check back again soon!
It costs over £3 million per year to run Queenscourt and we receive less than one third of our costs from the NHS. We rely on your generous donations and every year we are amazed by some of the extreme lengths people go to in order to help. Running a marathon or parachuting from a plane is not for everyone however! We also raise a lot of our money from home collection boxes, our weekly lottery and people donating unwanted gifts and clothes to our charity shops.
Another way we can raise money is through our legacies scheme which allows people to leave a gift to the hospice in their will. These donations are a huge help and allow us to be able to continue to provide all of our services for free to those who need them. If you'd like to find our more please check out our Leaving a Gift page.
