30 Years of Making Every Moment Matter

Weldmar Hospicecare

From the origins of three charities, encompassing inpatient care at our hospice, community care across Dorset, and day care, through to what Weldmar Hospicecare provides now for more than 2,000 local people every year, we’ve come a long way.

We couldn’t have done it without you.

This year, we’ll be sharing lots of special stories and memories, reflecting on the achievements and successes of those who have been instrumental in making Weldmar the very special organisation that it is, and the difference that Weldmar Hospicecare has made to the lives of those in our care. We would love to hear your story, too.

2024 will mark the start of another journey for us, as we consider how we can face unprecedented pressure our finances, whilst also dealing with higher demand for our services and challenges in recruitment. You can read more about why your support is now more vital than ever, and also take inspiration from our ‘30 ways to support Weldmar‘ during our 30th anniversary year.

There’s lots to celebrate, and this page will be regularly updated with our 30th anniversary activities, appeals, and memories, as we continue to ensure that specialist end of life care is there for all adults in Dorset who have a life limiting illness, as well as support for their loved ones as they navigate one of life’s most difficult journeys.
