News: Hospice Needs Volunteers

Posted on 11th February 2016

 

We will support you and those important to you to live well towards the end of life by giving compassion, hope and quality care.

 

Our vision –

 

We want to make a positive difference to the experience of everybody in our community who faces death or bereavement, by offering choice and support through our expert care, knowledge and understanding.

 

Our values

 

Nurturing – care for whole families and each other

Professional – strive for excellence, learn from our mistakes and celebrate success

Unified – work as one team with one vision

Transparent – act with integrity and honesty at all times

Empowering – encourage innovation, support personal and organisational development

 

 

We care for patients from Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Lewes, Uckfield and the surrounding villages. Last year, we provided care for more than 600 patients and their families. All of our Hospice services are free of charge and we receive less than 14% of our funding from the Government. This means we rely on our local community for providing 86% of our funding and have to raise more than £2.6 million every year through fundraising. That’s £7,200 every single day.

 

If you are interested in working or volunteering at St Peter & St James, please contact Human Resources on 01444 471598 or visit www.stpeter-stjames.org.uk.

Testimonials

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "

Judi Arditi, Director
(Travail Employment Group)

"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""

Peter Hook, Manager
(Computer Systems Engineers)

"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "

Steve Cridland, CEO
(Burgess Hill Town Council)

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
