Treetops Hospice provides hospice care for adults and their families in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. It cares for people with cancer, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis and end-stage heart and respiratory conditions.

Treetops is a registered charity which provides its services free of charge. It does receive some funding from primary care trusts, although the majority of its funding is donated by the general public. Specifically, it needs to raise £1.4 million in the next year to ensure Treetops can continue to provide care for people who need it.
