The help we offer includes counselling, family support and social work. We can give advice, support and assistance in discussing illness and treatments, and in helping prepare family members for the death of a loved one.
This support may be one to one support, couple’s support, children and family sessions, and peer groups. We are only able to offer this support thanks to the generosity of our donors and fundraisers; you can make a donation online.
We can act as an advocate and liaise with employers and schools if needed. We can support young people either individually or in a family group. Children under five will be supported via their parent/guardian or within their family unit and not individually.
We offer spiritual care, as well as physical and emotional care. The chaplaincy team is here to listen, journey with, enable and equip people to fulfil their spiritual needs and find inner peace. People like to talk about hope, peace, sense of meaning and purpose, faith, belief, relationships and forgiveness.
Keeping in touch when you can't be with someone who is so ill that they might die leaflet
Our family support team has put together some 'how to' videos for creative activities to do as a family; which also serve as a good distraction, allowing your children to open up and share their feelings, worries, and questions.
This video provides families with tools to help children cope with their worries and questions through the use of a worry box, worry monster, and worry people.
If your child/ren are having trouble sleeping; having dreams or nightmares; or you're having trouble getting them to go to bed; this video could help you. In this video we give you instructions on how to make a dream catcher - as a fun activity for you and the children - as well as guidance on how to encourage your child to open up with you.
When you make a donation to St Helena Hospice, we are charged transactional fees by other companies, including fees for processing payments made to us, looking up addresses and validating bank account details.
We are very grateful to our donors who offer to offset some of these fees with a minor addition to their total amount. This is however completely optional and we are very grateful for your support whether or not you choose to contribute to processing fees.Close
We are able to claim an extra 25p on every £1 on your donation amount for no extra cost to you, as long as you are a UK tax payer; have paid enough income tax or capital gains tax in that tax year; and are donating your own money. If you pay less income tax and/or capital gains tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of your donations in that tax year it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
