Stewart Shepard: Hospice Hope

Stewart will talk about this local charity which provides support cafes in Ashby, Whitwick and Ibstock and is opening a Day Hospice, Hope House, in Griffydam by the time of this talk it should be up and running. The 2011 census showed that 25% of households in North West Leicestershire contain someone with a long-term health problem or disability, and an assessment in 2015 found nearly 600 people in the area in need of palliative care. It is likely that we will all know someone among family and friends who needs support, and Hospice Hope is one source of such help.
