About Birmingham St Marys Hospice
About This Shop
At Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice, we provide care and support for people who are living with life-limiting illness and to the people that matter most to them.
We do this by taking care beyond the hospice itself, offering personalised support, in people’s homes or in their local community. Our aim is to help people live well with their illness, right up to the end of life, and to be there for their families, carers and loved ones.
Our inpatient unit at the Hospice offers intensive palliative and end of life care. Our expert team of doctors, nurses and therapists care for people on the ward, helping them manage their symptoms and providing therapies as well as advice and support. Our day services allow individuals to focus on living well, through self-help sessions, complementary therapies and psychological, social and spiritual care.
We are on hand to support families and carers with any emotional and practical matters. That might be helping to write a will or providing bereavement counselling to adults or children. Even after someone has died, our dedicated team are there to help people who are grieving carry on with their lives. We are champions of palliative and end of life care and have a commitment to research, innovation and teaching, striving to transform care for future generations.
Every day, we care for 400 people living with life-limiting illness across Birmingham and Sandwell. All of our services are free of charge to everyone who uses them, including individuals, their families, loved ones and carers.
It costs £8 million each year to run the Hospice – that’s £21,918 a day, £914 per hour, and £16 every minute. So we rely on people’s generous support to help fund our vital work. There are many ways you can get involved and support us – from signing up to an event, volunteering, making a donation or shopping at one of our 16 stores.
