About us

Our hospice is based in Mid Sussex and we care for patients from Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Lewes, Uckfield and the surrounding villages.

Our Mission – 

We will support you and those important to you to live well towards the end of life by giving compassion, hope and quality care.

Our Vision – 

We want to make a positive difference to the experience of everybody in our community who faces death or bereavement, by offering choice and support through our expert care, knowledge and understanding.

Our Values – 

Nurturing – care for whole families and each other
Professional – strive for excellence, learn from our mistakes and celebrate success
Unified – work as one team with one vision
Transparent – act with integrity and honesty at all times
Empowering – encourage innovation, support personal and organisational development.

Set in 23 acres of Sussex countryside, St Peter & St James has spectacular views across the South Downs. We encourage our patients and their loved ones to make the most of our grounds, which include landscaped gardens, a wheelchair friendly Woodland Walk and a summer house.

All of our Hospice services are free of charge to patients and their loved ones. We rely on our local community for 86% of our funds as we receive less than 14% of our funding from the Government and have to raise more than £2.6 million every year through fundraising. That’s £7,200 every single day.
