Havens Hospices in Westcliff is hoping to expand to a new facility in Prittlewell, catering for twice as many people.
Director of Fundraising and Communications Vanessa Longley says this would mean they will be able to care for people at every stage of their journey – once they’ve been diagnosed with an illness in which they can’t be cured.
The updated plans will be handed in to Southend on Sea Borough Council in February. Beforehand, there will be two public consultation sessions taking place at the Ekco Sports and Social Club on:
Wednesday 31st January, 10am-12pm
Saturday 3rd February, 10am-12pm
