About Dove House Hospice Limited

Dove House Hospice are a charity providing excellent care for people in the local community with life-limiting illnesses.

Their services are available to anyone over the age of 18 who has an illness that can no longer be cured. Care is provided for patients with cancer, neurological illnesses, heart diseases, respiratory diseases, HIV/AIDS, and many other illnesses.

The hospice is set in beautiful gardens and provides a ‘home from home’. They help by providing physical, social, psychological and spiritual support delivered by a multi-professional team who embrace the family and significant others throughout the patient’s illness.

All services are provided free of charge. The hospice has to raise more than £7 million every year to run, with the majority of this coming from funds raised in the local community.

Dove House Hospice is located in Hull and led by Chief Executive Anna Wolkowski.
