Friends are the special group of people who choose to support us with a regular donation.

Care, comfort and compassion are at the heart of our work – in our hospices and through our bereavement support. You can play a vital role in supporting people dealing with life-changing conditions by becoming a Friend of Sue Ryder.

Your generous contributions, however large or small, will help to provide expert care and warm support to patients and their families.

To manage symptoms, to offer advice and reassurance, to light up days with love and laughter – day after day, week in, week out. In return, you could enjoy a closer relationship with us, and a real insight into our work through exclusive updates, special offers and invitations.

There was just always somebody there. They treat you as though they have all the time in the world.
