St Richard’s Hospice cares for adults with a serious progressive illness, improving their quality of life from diagnosis, during treatment and to their last days. We also support their loved ones.
St Richard’s is an independent registered charity. The majority of income is from public donations; this includes gifts in Wills, one off or regular donations, fundraising events and personal challenges, trading, legacies and grants from trusts and business sponsorship. Approximately a quarter of income is funded from the NHS.
- There are 250 full and part-time staff led by our Senior Management Team and our Governors.
- St Richard’s was established in 1984. Read more about our history and how our services grew.
In to protect our staff at work in the community, they now carry devices that can monitor and record conversations. They can summon support services and the recordings can be used in court proceedings.
In the context of the Savile Recommendations St Richard’s recognises the need to ensure there is no risk to the safety and security of patients and staff arising from visits by celebrities, VIPs and other official visitors.
The organiser will be responsible for ensuring the visitor is accompanied at all times when they are in contact with patients/families/staff/the general public. All St Richard’s Policies and Procedures, including our Safeguarding Policy apply to everyone visiting the hospice to ensure a safe environment.
