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.
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.
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"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."
""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.""
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
