The Pear Tree Centre

Introducing the Pear Tree Fund

The Pear Tree Fund offers emotional, physical and practical support to people reaching the end of their lives so that those who wish to can die in the comfort and security of their own homes.

Originally known as Halesworth Community Nursing Care Fund (HCNCF), the charity was set up in 1989 and is entirely funded by people’s generosity.

We are now expanding the services we provide by building an innovative one-stop-shop for people who have been diagnosed with cancer or other life-limiting illnesses.

Called The Pear Tree Centre, it will provide a wide range of valuable services closer to home for anyone from north east Suffolk or south Norfolk, including help understanding a diagnosis, bereavement support and counselling.

We are asking for your support to help us continue providing these vital services for people in our rural community.
