Hours: 1 WTE post (part-time or job share will be considered)
Location: Sydenham, SE London
St Christopher’s was founded in 1967 by Dame Cicely Saunders and she led the development of the modern hospice movement. We provide a holistic approach to our care, offering help and support at home as well as in outpatient and inpatient settings. We are committed to delivering education and research programmes alongside expert practice related to the experiences of death, dying and loss.
Operating from two locations, one in Sydenham and one in Orpington, our efforts are focused on meeting the goals of people with a life shortening condition and supporting their families and carers wherever we can. Our reach spans across a diverse population of approximately 1.6 million people within the five London Boroughs of Bromley, Croydon, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark. We employ around 500 staff (including bank staff) who work within the community and across our two patient sites. We are supported by around 750 volunteers, many of whom provide their invaluable services on a regular basis.
St Christopher’s is a charity, led by a Board of Trustees and we raise significant funds each year through the generosity and commitment of our local communities. In addition, we raise funds through commercial activities, including charity shops to provide care and support free at the point of need
