How we are funded

St Elizabeth Hospice is an independent charity which provides its services free of charge. To do this we rely heavily on the support and generosity of the local community in East Suffolk.

Each year it costs around £12.9 million to deliver all our care services and run the organisation, including support in Great Yarmouth and Waveney.

70% of our hospice costs have to be raised by us, 30% comes from services commissioned by the NHS.

That means the remaining costs have to be generated through fundraising and donations.

There are a variety of ways people help us reach this target, including joining our lottery, visiting one of our hospice shops, fundraising at home or at work, holding an event, opening their garden to the public or taking part in one of the many sponsored activities organised by our dedicated fundraising team.

Some people decide to leave the hospice a gift in their Will or to start regular giving.

Every day, we hear from people who have been touched by our services, and as a result wish to give something back in their own way. This goodwill enables us to carry on caring.
