All Waste Matters are delighted to announce Pilgrims Hospices as our charity of choice and now be an official corporate supporter.
It is a truly wonderful charity, providing an incredible service and one which we have recently had personal experience with.
Through out the year we will be running fund raising events and making donations to the charity.
We provide specialist care to patients and families across east Kent.
Our vision is of a community where people with a life-limiting illness are supported and empowered, together with their family and friends, to live well in mind and body, and make the most of the time they have.
We have proudly provided skilled and compassionate care, completely free of charge, to the community of east Kent for over thirty five years.
Approximately 30% of people who die in east Kent are cared for by us.
We are now caring for more than 2,400 people each year - a figure that is set to climb in the years ahead as people live longer and with more complex conditions.
This care is given in our three inpatient units in Canterbury, Thanet and Ashford, in our therapy centres or in patients’ own homes.
We also provide a 24/7 telephone support service to patients and carers and offer bereavement support.
