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. Also, our hospice shops will be closed for the time being and we have postponed all of our fundraising events that were planned during the next few months.
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.

For current Government advice and help available for the extremely vulnerable, please go to

Emma’s Story

August 15th 2019

“I wanted to do something special for my 30th birthday and I had always been apprehensive about the idea of a sky dive, so I thought I would do one in memory of my aunt to raise money for Saint Catherine’s.

“Saint Catherine’s gave my Aunt the best possible ending that we could have wished for. Her month there was relaxed and it felt very safe and nurturing. Staff were immediately responsive to her every need. If she had gone home from hospital, it’s likely that the last month of her life would have been full of pain, uncertainty and anxiety.

“My challenge raised £720 and I feel proud that this money will help to provide care to patients and their families in the future.”
