St Kentigern Hospice

Every year we care for approximately 500 people with life-limiting illnesses across central North Wales. We not only support our patients, but also their families and carers.

We tailor our care to meet the individual needs of every patient, improving their quality of life and promoting dignity.

Although our care is given freely, it is not without cost. Every donation, however small or large makes a positive difference.
