Sponsor a Nurse 

Help our nurses be there for everyone who needs them.

Saint Francis Hospice has been offering hospice care in the communities of Barking & Dagenham, Havering and Brentwood for over 30 years. Our nurses are specialist experts in life-limiting illness - that means illnesses such as motor neurone disease, heart diseases, respiratory failure and cancer.

Our 18-bed inpatient unit offers expert care to people who need more intensive medical care towards the end of their lives.  

And our community nurse specialists make thousands of phone calls and visits to people in the community every year, helping ease their symptoms and manage their medication.   

More people than ever need our help. People who urgently need compassionate, expert care as they approach the end of their lives. By Sponsoring a Nurse, you'll be contributing to the future of our important services.
