Information about St Christopher’s
We are more than just a hospice. St Christopher’s exists to promote and provide skilled and compassionate palliative care of the highest quality. Our vision is of a world in which all dying people and those close to them have access to the care and support they need, when and wherever they need it.
We were founded in 1967 by Dame Cicely Saunders and, over 50 years later, her words still remain at the heart of everything we do: “You matter because you are you and you matter until the last moment of your life.”
Living with a life-limiting, long-term or chronic illness can place extra stresses and strains on you and your family. Join us in a friendly and welcoming environment where you can take part in a supervised exercise session, learn about the types of support on offer, and ways to help you to cope more effectively.
