Mount Edgcumbe Hospice in St Austell has been caring for patients since 1980. The hospice is run by Cornwall Hospice Care who deliver high quality palliative care across Cornwall and the Scilly Isles.

In 2013 the Wolfson Foundation provided a grant of £88,000 towards a major refurbishment of the hospice. The project aimed to bring the facilities up to date with clinical standards and to transform the inpatient rooms, guest rooms and patient relaxation areas to give a more contemporary feel.

The Wolfson Foundation has also supported Cornwall Hospice Care through Wolfson Bursaries: professional development grants, administered through Help the Hospices, for palliative care staff. The Foundation is particularly keen to encourage applications from parts of the country (like Cornwall) where there are relatively few other funding sources.
