Update on our new hospice

The safety and wellbeing of our patients is always at the centre of everything we do at St Catherine’s. At this time, with the complexities of delivering our care during an international pandemic, we must focus all our attention, resources and expertise on delivering our core services.

With this in mind, we have reviewed the timelines for the move to our new hospice facilities in Pease Pottage, and have taken the decision to delay the start of construction from June this year.

We are committed to building a new home for St Catherine’s and will commence construction as soon as it is sensible to do so. As you can imagine, managing a large build project and planning the move of an organisation like St Catherine’s demands a great deal of resource. For now, all our energies need to be focussed on providing outstanding care to our patients and their families when they need it most.

Thank you for your continued support. We hope to be able to provide an update on progress soon.

A new future for our hospice

Every year, St Catherine’s Hospice cares for around 2,100 people in our local community who are living with a life-limiting illness. As well as caring for patients, we offer support to their families: wives and husbands, sons and daughters and other loved ones who are left behind. For 35 years, we’ve provided this care at our Malthouse Road site in Crawley, but we’re not able to reach everyone that needs us. A larger, modern 24 bed hospice, with more space to provide our community services, will allow us to reach more people that need us. The new hospice will cost £17 million. We need the support of our community to raise the final £5 million needed to bring our plans into reality.

You can help more people get the care they deserve

If we are to reach everyone who could benefit from our care now and in the future, we need more space. That’s why we’re building a brand new hospice that will not only increase the amount of beds we can offer to those facing the end of their life, but also expand our community, counselling and therapies teams, as well as our day services.

All of this will only be possible with the support of our local community. We need to raise an extra £5m to make our vision of a new hospice a reality. By donating today, you’ll be ensuring that more of your neighbours can receive the care they need and deserve at the end of their life.
