About the organisation

Royal Trinity Hospice

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

We support people living in our central and south west London community, at home and at the hospice. Our care is centred on the unique needs of each individual and those close to them.

All our services are provided free of charge to patients and their families. We receive a third of our funding from the NHS, but we rely on donations to raise the remaining £8million every year that is needed for our services to continue.

Trinity has been providing this vital support for 125 years - last year, we cared for 1,500 people.

We are looking for partnerships with university in order to support our project. We would be very honored if you would agree to a partnership with our association. Indeed, we believe that the image of your university would be beneficial for our association. Association is another place to acquire skills. We think, students can develop and change our environment. To involve students now, will allow to resolve socials and environment issues of tomorrow.
