About us


Since 1988, East Cheshire Hospice has been caring for people suffering from life-limiting illnesses. We put our patients, their carers and families at the centre of everything we do, and our expert medical treatment is only the start of the holistic care we provide.

We prioritise each patient’s individual needs and wishes, aiming to improve their overall quality of life with practical assistance, emotional and spiritual support. At a time when family is so important, we also support carers and relatives with social and family services, peer support groups, complementary therapies and much more.

We understand that some people are fearful to consider the services of a Hospice, but our light and airy building nestled in a quiet residential area of Macclesfield has been quietly amazing people with its uplifting atmosphere, full of smiling faces and laughter. We want East Cheshire Hospice to be a place where people come to live, and as such nothing is too much trouble. We’ve held weddings, anniversaries, christenings and birthday parties at the Hospice, and our more unusual visitors have included dogs, cats, sheep and even ponies!

Being a charity means that we can provide all our services without charge. Less than 20% of our funding is from the Government and the remainder is donated by the communities we serve: Buxton, Congleton, High Legh, High Peak, Knutsford, Macclesfield, Poynton, Wilmslow and everywhere in between.

Thank you for your continued support!
