Welcome to St Christopher’s CARE

The Centre for Awareness and Response to End of life

10 October 2020

St Christopher's CARE

Thanks to you we raised a phenomenal £6.5 million to build a new, world-class education centre. Thanks to you the Education Team will shortly have the keys to a building that is flexible, modern and accessible for everyone. Thanks to the team at Ogilvy, the leading creative agency, we now have a name and visual identity for the centre that is vibrant, approachable and fresh.

We’re delighted to introduce to you the Centre for Awareness and Response to End of life or, for short, St Christopher’s CARE.

CARE is an extraordinary world-class facility
At the heart of St Christopher’s London
Dedicated to continuing the pioneering spirit
Of our founder Dame Cicely Saunders.

CARE is open to all
Students, carers and patients
Our local community
And our global partners.

CARE is a place to learn
A place to grow and a place to share
A beacon of education, rehabilitation
contemplation and peace.

CARE is where you’ll come to find answers
And where we’ll continue to ask questions
For there is much life-changing knowledge to learn
And much life-changing work to be done.

Everyone is welcome to CARE.

Opening St Christopher’s CARE

Work on the building is due to be completed in Autumn 2020 and we are so excited! Whilst we still have work to do around landscaping, demolishing the existing building and planning a grand opening in 2021 (sadly postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and social distancing measures) we look forward to settling in.

We will continue to offer virtual learning opportunities, from our swanky new centre, until it is safe to meet face-to-face once again. We’ve included some photographs of the building and look forward to welcoming you inside soon.

A special thanks

We would like to say a special thanks to everyone who has donated to our campaign and to the team at Ogilvy who have kindly given us their time and creative expertise free of charge. Thanks to you, thousands of people around the world will get the care they deserve at the end of life.
