Forget Me Not center provide family support

Neil Ainsworth FWP partner and architect on the project, said: “The ‘Forget Me Not’ center will allow the hospice to provide a wide range of support services for the community.

“It is a very special building, a beacon of hope that will make a real difference to people’s lives.

“Within the design we have used natural lighting wherever possible and have worked to create calm and friendly spaces throughout. The result is a homely feel, with strong interplay between the inside and outside spaces. We are delighted with the feedback we have received. ”

The project to build the center began last year, following a very generous donation from Nick and Barbara Scholes, who have been supporting the charity for many years.

Nick Scholes said: “We’re both proud Lancastrians and we have a strong affection for Lancaster and the work that the St John’s Hospice has carried out for its community over the years.”

FWP, which has offices in Preston, Manchester and London, has a wealth of experience in the healthcare sector.

It has a successful track record of delivering health projects in the North West over the last 25 years.

The practice recently worked with the Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust to create an award-winning new rehabilitation center in Wesham.
