After a major development project, Rowans Hospice will be able to help new categories of patients at a new Living Well Centre.

From the moment of diagnosis, people with a life-limiting illness in Portsmouth and South East Hampshire and their families and carers will now be able to get advice, support and help at Rowans Living Well Centre, which opened at the end of October 2016 at Rowans Hospice.

Craigmyle Fundraising Consultants managed a campaign of applications to grant-making trusts that helped to raise over a quarter of the Centre’s £1.7 million cost, completing a funding package that also included a government grant, major gifts, fundraising events and investment from reserves. The campaign was so successful that the Hospice has since added a trusts fundraiser to its fundraising team.

Rowans Living Well Centre is open Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm, and anyone needing support can just drop in, no medical referral is needed to access the services. It offers a relaxed and safe environment where people can spend time, make new friendships and participate in a variety of activities, including art and craft, a horticultural programme, carers’ support group, complementary therapies, formalised exercise groups, and many more.
