Welcome to Lifespan

North East, independent Charity supporting people with life limiting illnesses.

Lifespan is a local charity, based in the North East of England, which brings ease and support to people with any serious and life limiting illness and to family and friends who care for them. We visit at home, in hospitals and hospices. We provide a continuity of care helping the patient and their family through the illness. We work alongside GP's, consultants, hospital teams, Macmillan and other nursing teams to address the physical and emotional needs of the patient.

We charge a very reasonable £10 per session. This charge helps us to continue our unique service across the north east.

We offer a range of services such as:

  • Complementary therapies

  • Counselling

  • Nutritional advice

  • Art workshops

  • Befriending & Sitting Service

  • Bereavement support

Each has its own benefits and these will be discussed with the patient, carer or family member by the therapist ensuring provision of the best and most appropriate services.
