To provide Palliative Care free of charge to the people of Highland
Each year we must raise £2.1 million in addition to the £1.1 million provided generously by NHS Highland in order to provide the exceptional standard of palliative care to the people of Highland.
With over 600 volunteers in posts ranging from events right through to patient drivers and everything in between, a dynamic staff of doctors, nurses, admin support and fundraisers Highland Hospice is highly regarded throughout the UK as one of the best specialist palliative care resources.
The area covered by the Hospice stretches from Dalwhinnie in the south, east to Forres, west to Ardnamurchan, Lochalsh and Skey and north to John O'Groats and Cape Wrath. This area is 10,000 square miles or 1/6th of the UK landmass.
