The Haven Team at Care Plus Group has been awarded £1,742 from the Care Plus Group Charitable Trust to provide care packages and essential item packages to patients.
Based at St Andrew’s Hospice the Haven Team provide a seven day a week, day and night palliative and end of life service to residents of North East Lincolnshire, in the comfort of their own home.

Each patient referred to the Haven Team will be provided with a care package and essential items to vulnerable patients when required.
