Tynemouth Beer Festival 2018
is proud to support
St Oswald's was founded in the 1970s, thanks to the drive and determination of their founders, who felt so strongly that the people of the North East of England should benefit from hospice care, that they set about campaigning for it.
Over the years, their campaigning role has involved forging partnerships and driving forward an agenda to mainstream hospice care.
Today, they work with a number of partner agencies, most notably Hospice UK and Together for Short Lives, to campaign collectively with other UK hospices about issues affecting adults, children and young people with life limiting conditions.
Most recently, they've campaigned for better provision of transition services for young adults.
Building on this work they are also now regional lead for the ‘Transition Taskforce’. The Taskforce is a national initiative involving agencies such as Together for Short Lives, Hospice UK, Marie Curie and the National Council for Palliative Care. The aim of the Transition Taskforce is to ensure young people approaching adulthood with life limiting conditions make the transition to adult services and live their lives as independently as possible according to their wishes, whilst receiving the care and support they - and their carers - need.
The organisers of Tynemouth Beer Festival 2018 promise to donate 10% of the profit from the festival to St Oswald's Hospice, so the more beer you drink, the more we can give to them!!
