Sue Ryder received a £5000 grant from the The Recovery and Resilience Fund to enable them to reshape their service offerings in line with the restrictions and guidelines in place during the lockdown or the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, recover lost income and remain resilient in the weeks and months ahead. All of which helped them to continue to be there for local families needing their help and support at this difficult time.

Sue Ryder provides palliative care and supports people through the most difficult times of their lives. Whether that's a terminal illness, the loss of a loved one or a neurological condition - they are  there when it matters. They have seven hospices and four neurological centres across the UK in addition to an online bereavement community.

Here in Gloucestershire, they have a 16-bed inpatient unit and Day Hospice facility at Leckhampton Court as well as an expanding team of Hospice at Home nurses caring for patients out in the community, throughout the county. Their aim is to continue growing their provision so they are able to provide more care for more people.
