Hubs in the heart of our community

Our Community Hubs provide a welcoming, friendly space for people to come along for a cup of tea and a chat, talk to and be listened to by one of our team members.

At the Hospice, we feel passionate about reaching more people earlier in their journey to receive our support and care, giving them confidence to live well and enjoy life to the fullest. Our Community Hubs help us to achieve this aim.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we sadly had to close our two thriving hubs which ran every Monday.

This April, we were thrilled to reopen our Hubs, welcoming community members back with open arms.

Our third hub needs you!

In June, we opened our third Community Hub in Stevenage and are looking for new members and volunteers to get involved! Contact Richard on 07485 027596 or richard.julian@ghhospicecare.org.uk to find out more.

Mac’s story

“I got involved with Garden House Hospice after my wife died in July 2018. It took a long time for me to approach anyone. I wasn’t in any fit state to talk to anyone but I did eventually get in touch with the Hospice about a year after she died.

“Compassionate Neighbours and the church have done a lot for my wellbeing. I was suicidal and I was ready to take my life. That’s when I thought I’ve got to do something now, and that’s when I contacted Garden House Hospice.

“Compassionate Neighbours have been a life-saver. They literally saved my life.”

“It’s lovely to come back to the hub and to see friends again, instead of talking on the telephone. We’ve been looking forward to it for such a long time.

“I was a wreck beforehand, but now I get out in the garden and chat with neighbours. It was the Compassionate Neighbours that put me together. I’ve got nothing but praise for them.”
