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

"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."

"“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.""

"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
