Care Quality Commission
The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England. Their job is to make sure that care provided by hospices meets government standards of quality and safety.
When the Care Quality Commission carried out an announced inspection of Willowbrook Hospice on the 16th & 17th August 2016, they reported that all standards were being met.
Charities receive support from society in many ways and the public have the right to expect that charities are open and accountable.
The Charity Commission registers and regulates charities in England and Wales and it is their job to make sure that charities meet all their legal requirements.
Willowbrook Hospice was set up as a charity, number 1020240, to raise funds to build a hospice and thereafter to provide specialist palliative care services to the people of St Helens and Knowsley. Willowbrook complies with all the requirements of the Charity Commission.

In 2015, a Review of Fundraising Regulation chaired by Sir Stuart Etherington identified the need for a Fundraising Code Of Practice outlining the standards that are expected of all charitable fundraising organisations across the UK. This Code of Practice, developed by the fundraising community through the work of the Institute of Fundraising (IoF) and Public Fundraising Association (PFRA), is overviewed by The Fundraising Regulator to strengthen the system of charity regulation.
The standards for fundraising are set out in the Code of Fundraising Practice. To see the code please click here.
