St Helena Hospice Limited

Helping local people face incurable illness and bereavement, supporting them and their families, friends and carers.

We also support children and adults who are facing bereavement.

We reach out to members of our community, helping them make their own choices and live with dignity. By focusing on their physical, emotional and spiritual needs, we aim to bring comfort and relief to all those who need it, offering the people of North Essex individual care and total support, regardless of their diagnosis or personal circumstances.

We rely heavily on the help and generosity of our fundraisers, donors and volunteers. Without them we wouldn’t be here.

We all share a common goal: to be here every step of the way for everyone who needs us, helping life to go on in the face of dying, death and bereavement.

By visiting them in their homes, over the phone with our 24/7 advice line, through our day therapies, and at The Hospice, through all the smiles and all the tears we guide those who need us, because we believe in making every memory matter.

Our ambition: We want more people to have dignity and choice at end of life.

Our priorities: 

Reaching out based on need regardless of diagnosis or circumstances
Empowering people to plan ahead, share their choices and achieve their wishes
Providing excellent personalised care to more people in hospice beds and in the home
Helping life go on in the face of dying, death and bereavement
