Caring for you no matter where

St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth is an independent charity providing specialist advice and support to people with progressive life-limiting illnesses in Plymouth, South West Devon and East Cornwall. We believe that everyone deserves quality end of life care, no matter where.

We work with our community, in partnership with others, to achieve dignity, comfort and choice for people affected by life-limiting illnesses through delivering and influencing exceptional care.

We need your support

Our vision is a community where no person has to die alone, in pain or distress. In order to continue our vital work, we need to raise £7.8 million each and every year. Without your support this would not be possible.
