Philanthropy and charitable trusts

We have an ambitious vision to ensure everyone in need of hospice or neurological care in the UK can live the fullest life possible. 

Significant donations from philanthropists and charitable trusts are crucial to helping us provide and develop the best possible care for people and their families, and to growing our influence across the sector so everyone can access the care they need.

How you could make a difference:

Support us to help provide:

  • Hospice at Home services, enabling people living with a terminal illness to be cared for at home surrounded by their loved ones
  • Help us to provide vital emotional and practical support to our patients’ families

The trustees of the Garfield Weston Foundation were pleased to be able to lend early support to Sue Ryder's Capital Appeal for Dee View Court in Aberdeen. We are proud to be among the first donors to this most important project and hope our gift will add momentum to Sue Ryder's early fundraising efforts, encouraging others to follow suit.

We wish the Appeal continued success and look forward to seeing the completed expansion, so that more people in Scotland with complex neurological conditions can get the care they need.

What we offer philanthropists and charitable trusts

  • Dedicated support from a member of our Philanthropy team
  • A choice of how your donation is used. You can either leave it to us to use your donation wherever the need is greatest, or you can give to a specific programme or area of work – for example, our Hospice at Home service in the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough area
  • Invitations to exclusive events
  • Tailored proposals
  • Regular reporting back on the impact of your donation
  • The chance to see our work first hand and to hear from our expert nursing staff
  • The chance to make a genuine difference to the lives of terminally ill people and their families when it is needed most
  • Both nationally across the UK, and locally in our hospices and neurological care centres, philanthropic support is changing the lives of people who come to Sue Ryder for care.

We would be delighted to work with you to explore how you can make a difference.
