St Teresa's

St Teresa's

St Teresa’s Hospice exists to help people suffering from life-limiting illness; we help patients to keep their dignity, we preserve patient choice, and we provide care and support for carers and other family members.

We are an independent charity and since our foundation in 1986 we have grown to become a hospice which supports the people of South Durham and North Yorkshire through a range of holistic day, home, inpatient, complementary therapy, and family support services.

The Hospice’s fundamental mission does not change – we strive to offer CHOICE: Complete Holistic care, Offered free of charge, In the patients’ Chosen Environment.

We rely on the support of the community to be able to continue providing our vital free care. The Hospice as a whole is funded by charitable donations, income from fundraising events, retail income, legacies, and grants, and negotiated contract work.
