Your local Hospice supporting the people of Bedford

Bedford Daycare Hospice aims to provide individualised holistic care to patients suffering with a life limiting condition from the point of diagnosis through treatment to remission or palliative care.

We are an independent charity working with other organisations providing care and support for patients with life limiting illnesses in North and Mid Bedfordshire. We are situated in a large Victorian house in the middle of Bedford close to the town centre.

We raise the majority of our funding through the kindness and generousity of our donors. Even a small contribution helps us to provide the best care to our patients.


All of our care is free - but only thanks to the generousity of local people raising funds for the hospice.
