St Joseph’s Hospice was founded by the Religious Sisters of Charity in 1905 and is located in Mare Street, Hackney. Our mission is to provide compassionate, specialist palliative care to people in the diverse community in East London who are living with life-limiting illness.

We treat each person as unique, encouraging and enabling them to reach their full potential until the end of their life. We listen to the patient and their family so that we can work together to manage pain and distress whether physical, mental, social or spiritual. We encourage openness and honesty in communication to create an atmosphere of comfort and safety whether in the Hospice, in the patient’s home or in the community.

Our care is provided free of charge to anyone in the local community who needs it. We are so grateful for our supporters who fundraise, donate, or leave a gift in their Will to help us meet the running costs of the Hospice each year.

1 in 5 of our patients are cared for thanks to generous supporters who have left a gift in their Will. Your gift, no matter the size, will help us ensure that we can provide vital services to our patients and their loved ones for many years to come.
