The coronavirus crisis continues to have a profound impact on how we deliver and fund our free care.


Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in March 2020, Trinity’s income has been hit hard. The pandemic continues to take away lives. It brings isolation, fear and uncertainty.

The third lockdown imposed by the government to stop the spread of the virus means more cancelled fundraising events and the re-closure of our shops, resulting in a significant loss of the vital income we need to provide our free care. 

Meanwhile the entire Trinity team continues to work tirelessly and show incredible resilience. Everyone goes above and beyond every day, to continue providing world-class palliative and end of life care in spite of all the challenges we face.

We need your support to meet the demand for our free, outstanding care and expertise, to ensure it can continue uninterrupted.

Many patients are choosing to remain at home with more complex needs, and our Community team's expertise is vital to ensuring they receive the care they require.

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

Our inpatient team is still here 24/7 for those needing round-the-clock care and support to control their symptoms. 

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 people from across central and south west London, many of them in the last few months of their lives.

Usually, it cost £16 million a year 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.
