Since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have followed all UK Government and Public Health England guidelines and best practice to ensure everyone at the hospice and across the charity is protected as much as possible.
An Update from Treetops Chief Executive, Julie Heath
“As we experience a second national lockdown, I want to remind everyone that our main priority will always be keeping our patients and their loved ones, our staff, volunteers and the wider community, safe.
“Sadly, we have had to close our charity shops once again, some of our services will have to adjust and there will be a further impact upon our ability to generate much needed income.
“However, it is important to recall the huge wave of kindness that we experienced during the first lockdown. We kept going and our input was valued by so many. We received such positive coverage in the media which has resulted in so many more people becoming aware of Treetops and our services.
“We do great things at Treetops and we are needed now more than ever.”
We are working hard to continue to support and care for those people who need us the most during this difficult time.
Our Clinical Services have been adapted accordingly and we are still accepting referrals.
- Several Wellbeing Services have been moved online and more details can be found here
- Our Counselling Services are being continued via telephone and Zoom calls
- Our Hospice at Home nurses continue to provide vital end of life care for patients in their own homes
- Our new Roaming Nurse Service is going from strength to strength

Visiting the main hospice building
If you wish to drop off a monetary donation at the main hospice building to support us during this challenging time, we ask that you please follow social distancing guidelines.
Due to COVID-19, our income will be seriously affected for a long time to come. You can help us to be there always, at the most emotional and difficult time of someone’s life.
We’re grateful for any donations, big or small, to our COVID-19 Appeal. Thank you.
