The Norfolk Hospice is more than just a building - it is a hub of services for patients to receive either in their own home or at the Hospice - and offers a range of holistic care and therapies to people with cancer, neurological and other life-limiting conditions.
Our purpose is to help patients and their families by providing timely, compassionate and professional care and much needed support.
At The Norfolk Hospice we try to ensure that our patients, and those close to them, can live life to the full, have relief from pain and suffering and experience peace, respect and dignity to the very end of their lives.
Since 1984, our Hospice has been providing skilled and compassionate care to people with cancer, neurological and other potentially life-limiting conditions.
Our Hospice is founded on a philosophy of holistic care. Simply put, we aim to care for the person, encompassing the physical, emotional, practical and spiritual needs of patients, Furthermore, we offer a range of services to families and carers, all of which are tailored to meet the needs of the individual. Our care is provided without charge.

Our Community, Your Hospice, Our Future
The desire to provide Norfolk with the level of Hospice care it requires has always been central to the mission of our Hospice. A crucial part of this aspiration is a purpose-built Hospice within Norfolk and the Fens, something we do not currently have.
The area we serve is one of the few in the UK that does not have a full 24 hour Hospice service and this is something that is urgently required. The foundation work is now being carried out for this new Hospice but the work will only be completed with the support of the community we serve.
