About Us


Hospices across Yorkshire and the Humber have come together to promote our work across our region.  We have put together the first ever joint Yorkshire and Humber Hospices awareness campaign, an innovative and exciting project to spread the word about hospice care to the people in our region.  This campaign aims to develop awareness and engagement between hospices and their local communities.

Our advert - the first of its kind for hospices in the region - has been produced collaboratively by eleven centres, including children’s and adult hospices, to raise awareness of the high standard of support now being offered and encouraging supporters to ‘Keep Your Hospice Shining Brightly.’

The stars of the campaign are the real life nurses, physiotherapists, patients, fundraisers, volunteers, housekeepers, bereaved family members and therapy dogs who help every day to bring hospice care to thousands of people across the north.

The message of the advert is clear and simple, highlighting that hospices provide expert care, comfort and support completely free of charge to growing numbers of people in the region - and none of it would be possible without the support of their local communities.

Featured in the short film – which will be screened in daytime slots on ITV Yorkshire throughout March – are team members from Ashgate Hospice, Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, Dove House Hospice, Herriot Hospice Homecare, Kirkwood Hospice, Martin House Hospice for Children and Young People, The Prince of Wales Hospice, Saint Michael’s Hospice, St Gemma’s Hospice, St Leonard’s Hospice and St Luke’s Hospice.

All hospices participating are registered charities. You can find their registered charity numbers on the Find a Hospice page of this website. To find out more about the hospices in your area and how to give them your support, please visit the individual hospice websites.
