Transforming Grove House

The Grove House Appeal

Our appeal to raise money to transform Grove House into a community hub to deliver services in the local community to all those living with a life-limiting illness successfully raised £525,825 from the community towards our goal.


Despite the pandemic we were able to complete the building work and we’re delighted with the results. We trebled the space available by reconfiguring the internal area which is enabling us to expand our range of services for patients, families, and carers and has created facilities to provide services for children and young adults we care for. We​’ve also created an education suite to deliver first class training and development for Rennie Grove staff and other healthcare professionals.

The bright, modern, and welcoming spaces we’ve created will mean we can offer support to more people and will have in place the flexibility to deliver the services required as we see a continuing increase in the need for our services.

You can navigate your way around the tour with mouse clicks in a comparable way to Google Street View – or alternatively, you can click on the small triangular play button in the bottom left-hand corner and the tour will play itself. You might want to play the tour through first from beginning to end first and then navigate your way around yourself so that you can click on the hotspots and find out more about the building.
