St David’s Hospice is a local charity, caring for local people, delivering specialist care to adult patients with life-limiting illnesses or those in need of end of life care and their families. 

 Every year, this touches the lives of over 1,000 people within our local communities from across the counties of Conwy, Gwynedd and Anglesey.

We offer 24 hour care, 365 days a year providing a clinical service alongside emotional, physical and spiritual support.

 In our Day Therapy Centres (Llandudno and Bangor), we provide patient care, bereavement, and counselling services, whilst our Inpatient Units (Llandudno and Holyhead) offer symptom control, respite, and end of life care. 

 This year it will cost over £5 million to run St David’s Hospice with just 9% of that figure coming from the Welsh Government and Local Health Board. The majority of this comes from community fundraising. None of these costs are passed to the patients, their families or carers, because St David’s Hospice care is free to all.
