St Catherine’s Hospice is a charity dedicated to providing specialised end of life care and support to local people, their families, friends and carers.
For over 30 years we have been providing high quality hospice care, free of charge, to people living in Crawley, Horsham, Mid Sussex and East Surrey. Hospice care is based on the belief that each person is more than their illness, and that each of us has unique physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs. St Catherine’s responds to the needs of each individual, helping people achieve the best possible quality of life.
This highly personal, holistic approach to care takes time, skill and experience from a multi-professional team. We care for people in the hospice, in their homes and in nursing homes. We also provide training, advice and support to other health professionals.
We critically rely on voluntary donations and legacies and our care is only made possible thanks to the generosity of supporters and volunteers. Just over £2.5m of our funding is provided by the NHS and we rely heavily on the support of local people, companies and trusts to raise the rest of our running costs. Each year we need to raise £5.5m in voluntary income to ensure we can keep providing our vital services to those who need them.
