Objectives and Activities
The Trust operates in partnership with NHS Highland within the Hospice Inpatient Unit in the Cowal Community Hospital to provide services for the control and relief of pain, particularly for terminally ill patients.  NHS Highland provides the premises, staff and care and the Trust provides the specialist equipment and volunteer support.

Through its team of volunteer drivers,  the Trust provides a Patient Car Transport service to hospitals and other treatment centres throughout the West of Scotland. The drivers are unpaid although their costs are reimbursed.

The Trust runs a shop in Dunoon,  which is entirely staffed by volunteers.

From time to time,  the Trust also provides bursaries and scholarships to permit health care professionals to extend their knowledge of and to receive training in palliative care.
