About Us

St. Francis Hospice provides a specialist palliative care service for the people of North Dublin City and County. St. Francis Hospice is a voluntary organisation under the care of the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul. It is located in two places: Raheny Village, approximately five miles north of Dublin city centre, and Blanchardstown, near the junction of the M50 and the Navan Road.

The Services we offer include:

  • The Community Palliative Care Team, to advise and support families caring for loved one, and to enable the person to be cared for in his/her own home

  • Hospice Day Care provides additional care and support to patients living at home

  • Outpatient Services

  • St. Anne's In-Patient Unit (Raheny) offers admission for symptom management, and specialised care in the final stages of illness

  • Bereavement Care for a patient's family

Our 2012 Annual Report provides the most recent information and statistics about our service. Our Strategic Plan 2007 - 2011 outlined a challenging and ambitious programme which will result in significant developments over a number of areas and deliver real benefits to all our stakeholders. Please follow these links for information about our History, Mission Statement, and Philosophy and Aims.

Partial funding for the running costs of the service comes from various sources, including the Health Service Executive, Irish Hospice Foundation, Irish Cancer Society and local support groups. However, St. Francis Hospice depends to a large extent on charitable contributions, and benefits greatly from the generous support of the northside Dublin community. Our current financial needs include:

  • The current outstanding bank loan of €7.5M for the development of St. Francis Hospice Blanchardstown.

  • Ongoing operating costs of €225,000 per month for our Community Palliative Care and Hospice Day Care, which are only partially funded by the Health Service Executive.
