City Hospice's supporters are at the heart of our work. You make our work possible.  Every donation we receive, regardless of how much, has a direct impact on our work with patients and families in Cardiff.

Without you, City Hospice would not be able to:

  • Care for our patients in their own homes
  • support patients and families to deal with financial and other worries
  • help patients and families with pre and post bereavement counselling and support
  • offer specialist support to children and young people coping with the death of a parent or grandparent

We operate with integrity and high standards:

  • We adhere to the Fundraising Codes of Practice
  • We ensure all volunteers and third parties working with us to raise funs comply with the Fundraising Codes of Practice and this Supporter Charter
  • We comply with the law as it applies to charities and fundraising
  • we will display the Fundraising Regulator badge on our fundraising material to show we are committed to good practice

We are clear, honest and open:

  • We tell the truth and do not exaggerate

We respect and value you:

  • we are honest and transparent at all times.  We acknowledge when we make mistakes and we put things right

  • we welcome and actively encourage feedback and make it clear how you can get in touch with us
  • we regularly use this feedback both to improve and enhance our fundraising campaigns

We are Fair and Reasonable:

  • we try not to use any images or words that cause distress or anxiety
  • we will take care not to cause nuisance or disruption to the public

We are Accountable and Responsible:
