Salisbury Hospice costs £2.2 million to run, with Salisbury Hospice Charity committed to raising £1.5 million of the funding required.

Through the generosity of our many supporters, both individuals and businesses, we were able to provide care for almost 1,000 people every year, but we desperately need your help to continue to fund this invaluable service.

The services we support:

  • Inpatients
  • Peter Gillam Day Centre
  • Community Palliative Care Team
  • Hospital Palliative Care Team
  • Family Support
  • Education


Salisbury Hospice Charity (formerly Salisbury Hospicecare Trust) was set up in 1981 to provide palliative care and support for terminally ill patients and their families and friends within the Salisbury area. Under the chairmanship of Dr Peter Gillam, the hospice team initially worked from an office at the Old Infirmary in Fisherton Street, but by 1987 the purpose-built Hospice building on the site of Salisbury District Hospital was opened. Initially able to accommodate six patients, the hospice has been extended over the years and now has ten beds, day care room, administrative offices, an education centre and a wildlife garden.
