Help us build a new home for St Catherine’s Hospice


£15.2 million raised of £16.3 million target

Update on our new hospice

Last year we paused the build of our new hospice as we focused our energies on delivering expert care during the coronavirus pandemic. Given everything that has happened in that time, we have reviewed our plans to make sure they’re still in the best interests of our charity and our community. After careful consideration, we have concluded that building a new hospice at Pease Pottage remains the right thing to do. Over the past year we’ve learned a lot about what our community needs, both now and for the future. We’re now taking some time to review our Pease Pottage design plans in light of these learnings. Once we’ve reviewed our designs and have agreed a timeline for the building work we will of course update you.

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 £16.3 million. We need the support of our community to raise the final £1.1 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 £1.1m 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.

Our patients are the experts when it comes to explaining how your support will help more people like them, as well as their loved ones.


"Had I not come to the hospice when I did, I wouldn’t be here today, sharing my story."


"Every day that I come here, I feel completely enveloped in love. It’s a place where you feel protected and looked after."

"In the worst days, they brought light. It’s hard to put into words the quality of care and support we received during the hardest time of our lives."


"St Catherine’s literally gave me my life and my body back. You don’t lose anything coming here; you gain a lot."
