About Us


Saint Francis Hospice is an independent charity and one of the largest adult hospices in the UK. Our team of specialist consultants, doctors, nurses and a range of other health and social care professionals provide care and support to individuals with a life-limiting illness, as well as their carers and family members, completely free of charge.
Generic Essex MapWe serve the populations of Havering, Brentwood, Barking & Dagenham, Redbridge and West Essex. This year, we need to raise £7.8 million in voluntary income, so every donation from individuals and organisations is important to us. We also have a team of nearly 700 skilled and committed volunteers who help us keep our costs down and add huge value to the work we do.
