About the event

Friday visits offer professionals and those working in the health and social care sector the opportunity to learn more about St Christopher’s.

This half-day programme will outline some of our history and founding principles, the patient and relatives’ journey through our services and the challenges we face in the future.

During your visit you will meet various members of the St Christopher’s team who will guide you around the hospice and explain the services we offer.

More about St Christopher's education

St Christopher’s Education Centre and VAT charges

At St Christopher's, a registered charity, it is important for us to maximise any surpluses to reinvest in the objectives of the charity.

Unfortunately, the manner in which we undertake our training currently means we are not able to invest as much of our surplus as possible, therefore from the 1 December 2017, St Christopher’s Education Centre will charge VAT at the standard rate on our training courses, the reason for this change in pricing is twofold:

i) We want to be able to reinvest any surpluses made from training back into all of our charitable objectives rather than only Education

ii) We want to be able to reclaim the VAT on costs relating to developing and running the training courses
