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 £5million a year it costs to care for our patients.
