Zest, which is part of St Elizabeth Hospice, supports young adults aged 14 and upwards with progressive and incurable illnesses to ensure that they get the specialist care, tailored treatment and services they need to be able to enjoy life to the full.
Through this specialist care, young adults with challenging conditions are able to fulfil their aspirations, whether this is to manage their symptoms, access opportunities in the community and reduce loneliness by enabling them to meet and have fun with friends.
Referrals for the young adult service can be made online via the St Elizabeth Hospice website.

St Elizabeth Hospice in east Suffolk has been developing Zest since 2015, working closely with East Anglia's Children’s Hospices & other services, to ensure young adults have a smooth transition into adult care. From summer 2023, Zest will be expanding its services into north east Essex, working with St Helena to provide this vital service for young adults in Colchester and Tendring.
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.
