St Helena helps local people face incurable illness and bereavement by supporting them and their families, friends and carers.

The organisation has a reputation for excellence in the care it provides and has an ‘Outstanding’ CQC rating for its charitable services. It has developed innovative approaches across an increasingly diverse range of services and income generation activities and is ambitious to further push the boundaries of what it can be and achieve.

Looking to the future, St Helena wants end of life care to be better for everyone across northeast Essex, regardless of where they live, how old they are, or their diagnosis.

Over the coming years, St Helena will continue to explore new ways to provide our care and support to more local people. This will include increasing the scope and reach of our care, developing new services and programmes, working with community groups and voluntary organisations, and making sure our facilities are sustainable and future-proofed. At St Helena we recognise that others have an essential role to play in good palliative and end of life care, so we embrace partnership working; and to get the most from this we will provide leadership and coordination on behalf of our population.
