2018 Shortlist | Willen Hospice
Shortlist – Improving Impact – charities with 26+ paid staff
Who they are
Willen Hospice is a registered charity that provides specialist care for people whose illness no longer responds to curative treatment in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas.
What they’ve achieved
At Willen Hospice a programme helping people take part in physical activity hasn’t just helped them feel more resilient, but it’s improved overall wellbeing too.
Staff measured success through physical metrics and meeting goals, like regular gym attendance and using public transport independently. Patients are able to share their experiences directly with the board, and volunteer to help others feel the benefits.
