St Elizabeth Hospice is an independent Suffolk charity, which every year delivers care to over 4,000 patients and their families throughout East Suffolk, Great Yarmouth and Waveney, who are living with a progressive or life-limiting illness.
These services cost around £12m to facilitate each year, with the charity raising 70% of funds via revenue streams and the generosity of the community through support of its retail shops and fundraising activities.
Since 2015, we launched Zest - our young adult service which supports those aged 14 and above with progressive & incurable illnesses. We work closely with children’s hospice services to ensure young adults have a smooth transition into adult care, tailored treatment and services they need to be able to enjoy life to the full.
We've been providing services in Great Yarmouth and Waveney since 2019, in partnership with East Coast Community Healthcare. In 2023, our services in Great Yarmouth and Waveney merged with the organisation East Coast Hospice. Find out more on the merger here. We have specialist palliative care beds at Beccles Hospital as well as support in the community in people's homes. Find out more here or click the logos below.
