Weston Hospicecare recognises the great value of carers in the health and social sector. They are different to nurses, doctors and other medical professionals and play a vital role in treating someone in need.

The hospice’s CEO, Paul Winspear, says “It’s impossible to overstate how vital Carers are to the health and social care system, including end of life care. Each day this Carers’ Week, we will be posting a comment from one of our senior clinicians to express how they feel about Carers.

In keeping with their kindness, patience and selfless nature, the Carers who support our patients do not think of themselves as Carers, nor do they want to be considered that way. They see themselves simply as family and friends doing their best for a loved one. One of the best things the hospice can offer is to relieve people of the burden of caring so they can revert again to being sons and daughters, siblings, cousins, mums and dads, or just good friends. So to all the Carers, whether you think of yourselves that way or not, we salute you and we are here for you.”

Our leading medical professional’s quotes…

Monday 7 June 

“Carers support patients in countless ways that professional staff cannot; they provide physical, emotional, and spiritual support that is invaluable”

Tuesday 8 June 

“Without the selfless support of family, friends, neighbours and sometimes even strangers across our society,  healthcare services would crumble, they are simply inspiring”

Wednesday 9 June

“Carers are the unsung heroes; the backbone of our entire health and social system”

    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.
