Nelson Tasman Hospice

Providing specialist palliative care services to the region

Nelson Tasman Hospice provides specialist palliative care services for people of all ages with life-limiting illnesses, supporting them, their whānau and carers, through illness, death and bereavement.

Our services are free of charge; however, it does cost to provide them. At present we receive 45% of our annual running costs from Te Whatu Ora, Health New Zealand, Nelson Marlborough, the remaining 55% must be raised every year. We could not continue providing these services without the generosity of our corporate sponsors and community, or our Hospice Shops


Volunteering for Hospice can be a great way to support the community, gain new experiences and meet new people. Help Nelson Tasman Hospice maintain its range of care and support services.



Your support is vital to continue hospice care in the Nelson Tasman community. There’s lots of great ways you can help.



You can help Hospice make up this funding shortfall by making a donation, organising a fundraising initiative in your community, funding a day of care, or volunteering your time.
