Charity information

St Helena Hospice Limited

St Helena is a registered charity that helps local people in Colchester and Tendring to face incurable illness and bereavement - supporting them and their families, friends and carers. We care for people with incurable illness in our 15 bed Hospice and out in the community through Hospice in the Home.

We offer bereavement support to adults and children; not only those cared for by St Helena, but also those who experience sudden death.

We take time to help make every memory.

Founded 1985

  • Mission statement

    We exist for the benefit of our patients, their families and their carers. Our mission is to help local people face incurable illness and bereavement.

    We 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 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

    By visiting them in their homes, over the phone with our SinglePoint 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.
