The coronavirus crisis has had a profound impact on how we deliver and fund our free care.


Due to restrictions on the way that we can raise funds safely during the pandemic, earlier this year we had a shortfall of at least £3m in our funding. With your help and some crucial, and at times difficult, cost cutting measures, we have reduced this.

Together we’ve secured the present, however the future is still looking precarious.

The demand for our free, outstanding care and expertise has never been higher and we are faced with a severe challenge to ensure it can continue running uninterrupted.

Many patients are choosing to remain at home with more complex needs, and our expertise is vital to ensure they receive the care they need.

Many people are experiencing bereavement in extraordinary times, often cut off from those around them and turning to us for support.

Health care professionals in our community continue to rely on our experts for information, advice and guidance.

Help us be there for the people who need us

At any one time we are typically caring for over 740 patients from across central and south west London with a life-limiting illness, many of them in the last few months of their lives.

Last year, it cost £16 million to provide our outstanding free care to over 2,500 patients and nearly 1,000 carers. Only one quarter of this £16 million was funded by the NHS.

Your donation will help us be there for all the patients and their families who need us in these difficult times.

The population of 750,000 Londoners for whom we are the only provider of specialist end of life and palliative care still need our support and expertise. Without Trinity, there will be nowhere else for them to turn. Which is why we’re turning to you now. 

Together we will get through this crisis and we will be here for patients and their families for years to come. Thank you.
