Hope House

We are delighted to announce to all our supporters the fantastic news that North West Leicestershire District Council granted the Charity planning permission on 7th September to change the purpose of the downstairs of a large house in Griffydam from domestic usage into our proposed Day Hospice.

This rural location in the heart of our area is ideally suited for our Day Hospice.  The property will be known as ‘Hope House’ and finally we can start to provide much-needed day hospice services that the area has been lacking since the closure of Staunton Harold many, many years ago. Our aim is to offer a homely atmosphere, a place to find support, benefit from complementary therapies, enjoy creative activities, a nutritious meal and very importantly guests will have the opportunity to discuss their needs and concerns with an experienced nurse.

Now that planning permission has been granted, the Charity can start to put its plans into action.  There is a lot to do, but we hope to be in a position to launch Hope House in January 2017. 

If you feel that you can volunteer in any way at Hope House, don’t wait, send us an email or phone now!
