About St Oswald's Hospice

St Oswald’s Hospice is a local charitable hospice helping people who have life-limiting conditions to make the most of life, no matter how long that life is. Rooted in the North East, the charity has supported local people and their families for over 35 years.

We are a welcoming place that offers quality time for everyone. Our expert team will take time to understand you as a person, and offer support to those who are close to you. Providing a safe place is our priority, where you can feel relaxed and comfortable knowing you are being expertly cared for.
