St Richard’s is passionate about supporting our local families and community. We are keen to work with like-minded companies who want to make a positive difference to the lives of our patients.

Every business has to entertain clients, attract new customers, motivate their employees and engage their suppliers – St Richard’s Hospice is here to help!

St Richard’s is a well recognised name across Worcestershire and companies are keen to associate themselves with such an inspiring charity, to achieve their social responsibility objectives.

Corporate volunteering

If your organisation would like to support us with corporate volunteering, please download an enquiry form and return it to Amanda Walford, HR Manager.

Corporate volunteering holds an array of benefits for your company and workforce.

Recently, ISO Quality Services Ltd, based in Worcester, donated four days to the hospice: working to revamp the children’s area in its grounds, clearing weeds and repainting garden furniture.

Managing director, Jennifer Semini said: “We really wanted to try something different this year and corporate volunteering provides so many benefits to both the charities and companies involved.

“A charity is dependent upon volunteers just as much as they are donations, without either, they wouldn’t be able to survive.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.

The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.

Latest changes at St Richard’s Hospice

  • In-patient Unit: It is with great sadness that due to stringent infection control measures, we are required to restrict visiting and cannot offer the comprehensive level of service in the way we usually do. However, we will still do our utmost to make sure that each patient and loved one is given the compassion and dignity they deserve. To help families stay in touch we are encouraging virtual visiting using technology such as video calls and apps. This will be discussed and explained to patients and families on admission and we can help provide access to equipment in the hospice. In addition, the IPU nursing team will liaise with each patient and family to arrange short daily visits from the patient's closest loved one and compassionate visiting, as appropriate. Read the full details here.
  • Community Nursing: Community services continue to operate, with a mixture of hands-on care and remote support.
  • Living Well and Family Support Services: Switched to virtual model, with care given remotely over the phone or via video call.
  • Shops: All 19 of our shops and warehouse are temporarily closed. Please do not leave donations outside our shops, as we are unable to collect them at this time.
  • Fundraising: All hospice organised events until the end of August have been postponed. If you wish to support us, please donate to our Resilience Fund.

Please do not visit St Richard’s Hospice if you have a high temperature or new, continuous cough. If you have these symptoms, please stay at home and self-isolate for seven days. See NHS advice on coronavirus.
