Our Plan

We’ve been caring for people in Greater Manchester and Cheshire for more than half a century, and we have big plans for the future.

We are proud to be the biggest hospice in the North West, caring for thousands of people every year – whether as inpatients, outpatients, or via a wide range of community and outreach services.

Manchester has always been at the forefront of driving change and innovation, and at St Ann’s, we’re proud to have been developing, improving, and shaping world-class care for local people for more than 50 years.

Our support

Our support means different things to different people. Some people come to us for care at the end of their life, others for help managing their symptoms. Some come for support as they care for a loved one with a life-limiting illness; others for help with practical matters, access to social workers, rehabilitation support, or for someone to talk to about their mental health.

Our care is truly holistic, and whatever the needs of our patients and their loved ones, all of our services remain free of charge to those who need them. We can only do that thanks to the generous support of our community and the tireless efforts of our supporters

Our current building in Heald Green

However, as a former children’s home, St Ann’s Hospice in Heald Green was already more than 100 years old when we converted it into a hospice in 1971. The building’s age and structure are starting to create limitations on our ability to evolve to meet the growing and changing needs of the people we serve.

It is restricting our ability to support patients to access the care they deserve, at what for many is an extremely vulnerable time in their life. We need a new, purpose-built hospice that will serve the needs of our community now and in the future.

If we do not act now, we’re at real risk of closing services in the near future. But, with your support, we can create a new hospice facility in Heald Green that ensures we can continue to deliver pioneering, world-class care for people in Greater Manchester for generations to come.
