At Saint Catherine’s we are doing everything we can to keep our patients, families, staff , volunteers and supporters safe at this difficult time.
Our key clinical services are still running, which means that patients are still being cared for in the hospice and at home.
However, in line with Government guidance and with safety paramount, we have taken the decision to reduce some face-to-face services and restrict visitors on site.
Every decision being made is in the best interests of our patients, families, volunteers and staff.
We need your continued support and help more than ever as we continue to pay and support all our members of staff – we appreciate every donation, every message and every offer of support.

Welcome to Saint Catherine’s

We are committed to providing the best possible care and quality of life for those with life limiting illnesses. 


Our care is provided both in the hospice and out in the community through our Hospice at Home team, so we can offer care tailored to the needs and wishes of our patients, their carers and their loved ones.


Saint Catherine’s is a Scarborough-based hospice but we provide care throughout 1,600 square miles of North and East Yorkshire. All of our services are provided free of charge, meaning that we rely on fundraising to help us reach the £5.5million a year it costs to care for our patients.
