Hospice at Home West Cumbria have been awarded a three-year grant of £153,308 from the Copeland Community Fund to support its emotional wellbeing and bereavement services across Copeland. This is the second multi-year grant the charity has received from the funder and will enable the specially trained team to provide individualised services for patients with a palliative illness and those close them, such as family members.

Claire Jenkinson, Family and Bereavement Services Team Leader said: “We are incredibly grateful to the Copeland Community Fund for this exceptional grant towards our family and bereavement services. Their continued support highlights the value of our work and recognises the need for emotional wellbeing and bereavement services in the palliative care sector across Copeland.”

Chief Executive of Hospice at Home West Cumbria, Julie Monk, added her gratitude by saying “The generous support of the Copeland Community Fund is fantastic, and we cannot thank them enough for their ongoing commitment to our work. Fundraising is incredibly challenging at the moment as many people feel the pinch of rising costs, and this award could not have come at a better time. It will make a real difference to the lives of so many people going through difficult times.”

Hospice at Home West Cumbria have developed a unique range of bespoke services, including anticipatory grief, emotional wellbeing and bereavement support, which are delivered through one-to-one and group sessions and a range of complementary therapies.
