St Helena Hospice

Toni Night explained that St Helena help local people face incurable illness and bereavement, supporting them and their families, friends and carers. She went on to say:

“We also support children and adults who are facing bereavement. We reach out to members of our community, helping them make their own choices and live with dignity. By focusing on their physical, emotional and spiritual needs, we aim to bring comfort and relief to all those who need it, offering the people of North Essex individual care and total support, regardless of their diagnosis or personal circumstances.

We rely heavily on the help and generosity of our fundraisers, donors and volunteers. Without them we wouldn’t be here.

We all share a common goal: to be there every step of the way for everyone who needs us, helping life to go on in the face of dying, death and bereavement.”

Following questions about the recent article in the local news, Ian Dawson explained that the planned closure of the Tendring Centre does not mean the closure of services – all services currently run at the Centre will continue at an alternative location in the local area.
