Longfield is a charity that provides support to adults in Gloucestershire who are affected by life-limiting illness, whether as a patient, a carer or having been bereaved. It offers separate counselling, complementary therapy and art therapy, or a 12-week course of Day Therapy, plus specialist groups for people with fatigue and breathlessness, heart failure or who have been bereaved and a range of courses specifically for family and other carers.

In the last weeks of life, the Hospice at Home service gives people the choice to die in their own home and Longfield also provides training for other health and care professionals who are supporting people at the end of life. More than 85% of the charity’s income comes from the general public, through 18 shops and a wide range of fundraising activities.
