Welcome to the Buddhist Hospice Trust Web Site
“Be present, bear witness, and befriend…”
The Trust works through a network of volunteers to provide compassionate care and spiritual support for seriously ill, dying or bereaved people, their families, friends and carers.
We are a non-aligned, voluntary and autonomous association of Western Buddhists, open to ALL who want to join, want to help, or need any kind of help themselves. If you feel that we might have something to offer you then please do not hesitate to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Trust is a “hospice without walls”, i.e. no building or equipment. We don’t have in-patient services (beds) or provide nursing or palliative care. We can sometimes help by pointing to sources of specialist help in a particular locality.
Our volunteers make a commitment to ‘be present, bear witness, and befriend’ people who call on us for help. They will always be required to operate within a Code of Conduct. Volunteers are currently needed in London and the Home Counties.
We’re also keen to hear from health and social care organisations, as well as from individual carers, nurses, social workers, chaplains, teachers, students or researchers about issues of mutual interest or concern.
Our work is funded wholly by voluntary giving. Please help by making a donation, using one of the secure PayPal buttons that appear on each page. Thank you!
