Message from the Joint Chief Executives

We want to help people facing some of the most frightening times in their lives – whether that’s caring for or losing a loved one, falling ill, growing old, dying alone in pain, or death itself. 

At St Christopher’s, we have 50 years’ of experience of supporting people at these difficult times and helping people to live well with a terminal illness. However, we don’t have the resources to reach everyone who needs us, so we must find an innovative solution to ensure good end of life care is available to all in the future. 

Education is the answer. We want to focus our vision on educating everyone involved in care for the dying and bereaved – locally, nationally and internationally. 

Our vision is a world in which all dying people and those close to them have access to the care and support they need, when and wherever they need it.

Dame Cicely Saunders

By supporting and equipping professionals with the right practical and emotional skills, we can develop a resilient and capable workforce and improve the quality and availability of care. We also want to offer new learning opportunities to the public – including family, friends and carers so that they can play a greater part in caring for their loved ones. 

This will ensure patients can be better supported at home, carers feel more able to cope with the demands of their role, and professionals can focus their time on patients with the most complex symptoms.
