Paul Sartori Hospice at Home are delighted to announce that we have been selected as a 2018 Weston Charity Awards winner. Paul Sartori has received a core grant of £6,500 and a year’s strategic planning support.
The Weston Charity awards celebrates and supports great front-line charities in the North of England, the Midlands and Wales with incomes under £5 million. The charities need to be delivering youth, welfare or community services. Nearly 200 small charities applied and Paul Sartori was chosen as one of only 20 winners.
“This award means a great deal to us. We will have strategic mentoring partners to help us deliver our business plan and strategy for the next three to five years. We look forward to working with the Weston Charity Award team, Pilotlight team and the Pilotlighters over the next 10 months. Having such reputable partners will help raise our profile nationally,” commented Sandra Dade, Charity Manager at Paul Sartori.
The Paul Sartori Hospice at Home Service provides a range of services to Pembrokeshire people living in the final stages of a life limiting illness, including home nursing care, equipment loan, complementary therapy, bereavement and counselling support, clinical nurse specialist in palliative care, physiotherapy, advance care planning and training.
The services provided by the Paul Sartori Hospice at Home Service enable people in the later stages of any life limiting illness to be cared for and to die at home with dignity, independence, pain free and surrounded by those they hold most dear if that is their wish.

Notes to Editors:
Paul Sartori Hospice at Home Service:
- is particularly keen to dispel the belief that it is a ‘cancer charity’ as this deters people with other life-limiting conditions from contacting the Paul Sartori Foundation (32% have a non-cancer diagnosis)
- operates an open referral system with around 15% of referrals from patients, family and friends. The biggest referral group is District Nurses, followed by Palliative Care Clinical Nurse Specialists and hospital staff
- was established in memory of Father Paul Sartori, a much loved local priest, who recognised a need for hospice care, but unfortunately died of cancer at the age of 39. The Foundation was set up in his memory and provides care to people with any or no faith, and not just Catholics
- charity was registered in 1982 and celebrated its 35th anniversary during 2017-2018
