About Ashgate Hospicecare
Ashgate Hospicecare is a charity (no. 700636) that provides compassionate, specialist palliative and end of life care, free of charge, to patients with a life-limiting illness and their families across North Derbyshire.
Our vision is that everyone in North Derbyshire with a life-limiting illness, and the people important to them, can make the most of every moment together and that they can die with dignity and comfort.
Last year, we looked after 1,680 patients at home, 414 patients on our ward and supported 476 bereaved family members.
For patients with the most complex needs, we have an Inpatient Unit. However, most of our patients are cared for at home by our team of specialist nurses, specialist therapists and healthcare professionals. This enables them to stay where they feel most comfortable for as long as possible.

How we’re funded
We are not an NHS hospice. Less than 28% of our total income comes from local NHS health budgets.
Every £1 donated to Ashgate Hospicecare – whether through participating in an event or donating or buying items in our shops - makes a huge difference. Thank you for your continued support. We wouldn’t be here without it.
