Our Promise…Willowbrook Hospice is here for you.
We welcome all people, and believe that everyone has the right to be the person they are, to live without fear or prejudice regardless of their ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, faith and belief, or disability.
We believe that our hospice is a better place to receive care, to work and volunteer when we all feel included, respected and welcomed.
We value the strength that comes with difference and the positive contribution that diversity and neurodiversity bring to our community.
We are committed to inclusivity and our approach is rooted in our Mission.
Care, Educate and Engage.
