Our vision for the Learning Hub

Find out how the Learning Hub will be so much more than just a building

Welcome! This is a twice a year publication to inform and inspire those wanting to improve the experience of people facing the end of life. Knowing more about what to expect and how to “do” end of life well is of value to each and every one of us. If we work in health or social care, we may be interested on behalf of our patients or clients. If we are caring for a friend, a neighbour or someone in our community who is increasingly frail or terminally ill, we are likely to want clarity about how best to help, and what to expect.

We want to give people the chance to make the greatest difference whatever their current role or interest in end of life care. We believe this is best achieved by providing people with opportunities to gain fresh understanding and develop new skills, become part of supportive networks and have access to different alternative perspectives. 

Regardless of where people live in the world, care is often inadequate for people at the end of life, resulting in unnecessary suffering both for those who are dying and for their families. It is imperative that St Christopher’s responds and does so at scale. 

Reflective of our philosophy of care, our approach to supporting learners is focused on their goals – what they wish to achieve and what knowledge and skills will enable them to do so. 

With a new building, equipped with cutting edge technology, comes the opportunity to create new learning spaces (physical and virtual) that encourage creativity, connectivity, reciprocity and greater insights into the worlds of others. 

We expect to work with new partners including other educators, pioneers in care and leaders in the sector who share our ambition to engender curiosity and find answers through learning. The Learning Hub is so much more than just a building – it embodies a philosophy and approach that is inclusive, empowering and potentially transformational.
