About Royal Trinity Hospice

Royal Trinity Hospice provides skilled, compassionate care and support to people with progressive, life-limiting illnesses and those close to them.

We support people living in our London community, at home and at the hospice. At any moment, Trinity is caring for 700 patients.

All our services are provided free of charge to patients and their families. We receive only a quarter of our funding from the NHS and rely on donations and the income from our 32 shops to raise the remaining £10.5 million every year that is needed for our services to continue.
