You may find it comforting to speak to someone unconnected to the hospice when wanting more information about mental health and wellbeing for yourself or someone else. There are information lines and online support available just for this.

Please be aware that the hospice provides all support links as in a signposting capacity only. Please check on the organisations websites for information on confidentiality, costs of calls, and accessibility before contacting. 

The information on this page is correct as of April 2020
