Support for Ukraine


As we all do our bit in these terrible times some coordination is being organised to offer support and practical help to the people of Ukraine.

We are forming a community group for any Ukrainian refugees that are accommodated here through the government's ‘Homes for Ukraine’ scheme, which was announced in March, so that they, and host families, all have a network to support one another. We are connecting to key community services, ie: NHS, council, church, to ensure dots are joined up to help meet the needs of these vulnerable people.  If you have offered a space in your home and are matched with a family in need, please contact Claire on 07595 674241 or email at: claire.uwins@mac.com to be added to the group.

In addition if anyone has any useful skills to offer;  professional counselling or can speak Ukranian, hairdressing etc… anything else that might help, please let the group know if you are willing to volunteer some time to help if needed?

In these difficult times we all feel helpless and upset by what we are seeing unfold. Whatever you can give, whether it be it space in your home, some of your time or financial aid, will go some way to helping the Ukrainian people in their hour of need. Please donate useful items or money generously to the key charities that are organising relief and support such as the Red Cross or DEC.

Isabel Hospice - Celebrating 40 years

40 years of care in our home, and yours

We are excited to be celebrating our 40th anniversary in 2022, with activities and celebrations planned throughout the year, as we look back on four decades of Isabel Hospice.

Since changing our name in 1982, when the Welwyn and Hatfield Hospice service was first established, one thing that has remained constant is our commitment to providing free end-of-life care and helping our patients and their families live every moment to the last. In the last 40 years, we’ve touched the lives of patients, family members, volunteers, staff, healthcare professionals, donors, business people … the list goes on!

We’re so proud to be celebrating our birthday, but we’re even prouder to hear your stories about how Isabel has touched your lives over the years. Join us as we look back over some of the key moments from our history, reshare our whole archive of Care News and share some of your stories from each decade.

Thanks to the fantastic support of our local communities, we are one of the oldest hospices in the area. We’re incredibly proud of everything your support has enabled us to achieve over the last 40 years.

Please join us throughout 2022 in celebrating this magnificent milestone by helping us to raise as much money as possible.
