• Welcome


    Set in a tranquil and leafy location in Ashton-under-Lyne, Willow Wood is a purpose-built Hospice providing specialist Palliative Care to those suffering with life-threatening illnesses.

    The staff and volunteers at Willow Wood are committed to providing a better quality of life - the Hospice was designed with the needs of the patients and their families in mind and provides a warm and cheery atmosphere.

  • Healthcare


    The emphasis at Willow Wood is on Palliative Care - although the medical team cannot provide a cure, they offer comfort, support and relief from many distressing symptoms.

    We provide a range of care to patients, including In-Patients, Day Hospice and Out-Patients. We have our own hydrotherapy pool and have recently opened a Lymphoedema Clinic.

  • Fundraising


    It currently costs over £2 million per year to run the Hospice, but no charge is made for any of our services.

    We receive financial support from the local Health Authority, but we also rely heavily on voluntary donations and fundraising activities for the majority of our income.

  • Community


    We rely heavily on our small army of more than 400 volunteer workers and helpers, without whom the Hospice could not survive.

    We also depend on support from people and businesses in the local community. Many local businesses have supported the Hospice by raising funds, or by sponsoring or hosting fundraising events. We are always on the lookout for more corporate partners.
