The Pear Tree Fund's vision

The Pear Tree Fund, formerly known as Halesworth Community Nursing Care Fund (HCNCF), was set up to support people who are registered with Cutlers Hill Surgery in Halesworth and wish to die in the comfort and security of their own homes.

The charity works alongside the NHS and social services to provide extra equipment and 24-hour care in the last days of life. Our aim is to offer emotional, physical and practical support at the time when people need it the most.

We pride ourselves on helping to meet the individual needs of our patients and their families while also giving them a choice of where they receive their care as they near the end of their lives.
