Weston Hospicecare was born in 1989 when members of the Weston-super-Mare community realised the need to care for those who were very ill at the end of their life.

In 1991, the first day services began which was followed in 1997 by the opening of an inpatient unit. In 2002, we moved to Jackson-Barstow House in Uphill. A change which was made possible thanks to an incredible charitable gift from Enid Sybil Jackson-Barstow.

Her incredible contribution provided a springboard towards the present day where we care for more than 1,000 patients and their families every year. Gifts in wills are still a vital part of providing care, read more about how crucial they are by clicking here.

Weston Hospicecare moves to Jackson-Barstow House in the heart of Uphill thanks to a wonderful legacy donation from Enid Sybil Jackson-Barstow. It remains our home to this day!


Weston Hospicecare celebrates it’s 30th anniversary of caring for people with life-limiting conditions with a special church service in April and a party in October.

    Reclaim Gift Aid

    Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Weston Hospicecare to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Weston Hospicecare we can claim back 25p from the government.

    By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Weston Hospicecare to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Weston Hospicecare will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

    What is Gift Aid?

    Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Weston Hospicecare receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

    All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

    The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
