Your help, no matter how big or small, is invaluable to the families we care for in County Durham.

We are so grateful to benefit from your kindness, be it the time you spare to volunteer, the donations that you so generously make, the events that you take part in or simply by sharing news of our care with those you know.

Every single day our nurses, doctors, counsellors, social workers and therapists provide compassionate care for people in our local community who are living with a life-limiting illness. This is only possible thanks to the generous support we receive from people like you. The local community helped to create St Cuthbert’s Hospice, and today helps us to continue making every day count for those who rely on our vital care.

Whether you are an individual or a family, a group or a business, there are many ways you can get involved and show your support for your local hospice.
