Rossendale Hospice is a local charity which cares for patients and their families living with cancer and other life-limiting conditions including, Motor Neurone Disease (MND), Multiple Sclerosis (MS), chronic lung disease (COPD), Organ failure and others.
We offer many services free of charge include Day Therapy, a range of Complementary and Psycho therapies, Bereavement Counselling and a Befriending Service. In addition we also provide Long–term Support Nurses to help patients and families to cope with long-term conditions and prevent unnecessary hospital admissions and Hospice at Home care for patients at the end stage of their life.
It is no exaggeration to say that Rossendale Hospice could not survive without the continued support and generosity of local individuals, organisations and companies who allow us to meet ever increasing running costs.

5 Valley schools raised a record amount for Rossendale Hospice in an entrepreneurial challenge.
The event, jointly organised by Rossendale Hospice supported by Baldwins and Alder Grange School, is in its 5th year. The five schools raised a combined total of £7,130.64 in this year’s ‘Youth Enterprise Challenge’.
The contest, launched in October last year, lasted 16 weeks and saw Year 9 & 10 teams from Alder Grange, The Valley Leadership Academy, Whitworth High, Haslingden High and Tor View school, all come up with enterprising initiatives to generate as much income as possible to be donated to the hospice.
Thank you to all the schools who took part and for the hardwork and effort that went into their fundraising.
We are working as normally as possible in what is an unprecedented and ever changing situation, and following government guidelines to keep our patients, volunteers and staff safe. Our Hospice at Home Teams are continuing to provide essential care for patients in their own homes but unfortunately we've had to adapt some of our other service provision.
Our fundraising activities have also been impacted as we've had to cancel many upcoming events which we so rely on. We will be launching a campaign to run over the next 12 weeks, and while we appreciate these are the most difficult times for all, we would be most grateful if you are able to make a donation.
