Press Release 22-Nov-2018: Work on vital support centre set to begin 

The Pear Tree Centre

Our vision

We want to further expand the services that Halesworth Community Nursing Care Fund provides, by developing an information and support centre to offer support, counselling and finance and benefits advice to people who have been diagnosed with a life limiting illness, as well as their families, friends and carers.


Called the Pear Tree Centre, it will be easy to access and open to everyone. The centre will be built on land adjacent to Cutlers Hill Surgery. It will bring a wide range of services closer to home for people living in north-east Suffolk and south Norfolk.

Anyone with a life limiting condition will be welcome to drop in and use the services on offer, which will include help understanding a diagnosis, wellbeing advice, complementary therapies, legal guidance and support for children and families

We believe the Pear Tree Centre will quickly become a valuable resource which will help hundreds of people of all ages every year, giving vital support when they are at their most vulnerable.

Thanks to your generosity, we have reached our fundraising target and have raised £710,000 to construct the building, but are still asking for your support to meet its running costs. Please do get in touch if you’d like to help.
