Become a Hospice UK Ambassador

Play a pivotal role in transforming the way society cares for dying people and those around them.

Fiona Dolman is a Celebrity Ambassador of Hospice UK

Fiona Dolman has been a successful actor on stage and screen for 30 years. She currently plays Sarah Barnaby in Midsomer Murders. Her CV includes some of the UK's best loved shows - Heartbeat, A Touch of Frost, Holby City, The Bill, Casualty, to name a few.

We provide around £1.5 million directly to our 220 member hospices in improvement & project grants - and train 2,000 nurses, health professionals and hospice leaders each year. 

But it costs £3.6 million every single day for hospices to provide free outstanding end of life care. The vast majority of this is funded by donations from the public.

By becoming a Hospice UK Ambassador your support will ensure that everyone who needs hospice care, gets hospice care.

  • £1,500 could enable families to receive the advice, information and support they need to cope with a loved one’s terminal diagnosis.
  • £5,000 could help to run Hospice IQ, our unique online network where palliative care staff can share information and support each other in confidence.
  • £7,500 could fund professional support, advice and resources for senior nurses to help them deliver better hospice care in hospitals and for people at home.

Hospice UK Ambassadors are a group of like-minded people who believe in outstanding hospice care for every person in need.

By making a regular monthly or annual gift to support our work, you will receive the following benefits:
  • a twice yearly progress report on the work you are supporting
  • invitations to briefings led by our senior team
  • a dedicated programme manager to handle all your enquiries
  • opportunities to attend private hospice visits to see our work in person
  • advance notice of exclusive and special events and peer-networking opportunities
  • your name, or the name of your loved one, inscribed on our Tree of Life at Hospice House

You can join the Hospice UK Ambassadors programme by making a donation of £1,500 or more per year.
