The foundation of our financial planning business has always been the strong relationships we have had with our clients. Lifetime has been built upon their loyalty and the level of service we have been able to provide.
We want to continue to develop this relationship and we also want to give you the opportunity to make a difference to your community, wherever you live.
If you are happy with the service you have received from Lifetime and know of family, friends or colleagues you feel could benefit from our online service then we have found a way that will also benefit your local community.
For all introduced clients to Lifetime, we will donate, on your behalf, 10% of any initial fees generated on new transactions completed with these clients, to your local hospice.
We have currently given donations to 24 hospices in the UK.
A hospice is a house, or home, dedicated to the care of terminally ill patients. The first hospice was set up in 1900.
Charitable hospices in the UK raise the bulk of their funding through support from their local communities including: fundraising, hospice charity shops, legacies, hospice lotteries and investments. They receive some statutory funding although levels vary across the UK, between the different nations and also within different regions.
The purpose of hospices is to care for and support patients and their family and friends.
There are three main aims of hospice care:
- To relieve pain. Hospices specialise in pain control. Hospice staff believe all pain, however severe, can be brought under control.
- To help patients, friends and relatives face up to death. Opportunities are given to the patients and to family members to discuss death and dying.
- To care for the emotional needs of friends and family. Hospices help families cope with bereavement before, during and after the death of their relative.
