St Helena Hospice

St Helena Hospice is a Colchester based charity which provides specialist palliative and end of life care to local people facing incurable illness in north east Essex, supporting them, their families, friends and carers.

We provide individual care and total support wherever it is needed; at home, over the phone with our 24/7 advice line, and at the hospice.

We also help adults in north Essex to cope with grief following the death of a loved one, regardless of where or how they died.

We reach out to members of our community, helping them make their own choices and live with dignity. 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 east Essex individual care and total support, regardless of their diagnosis or personal circumstances.

As a charity we rely heavily on the help and generosity of our fundraisers, donors and volunteers. Without them we wouldn’t be here.
