Charity: Saint Francis Hospice

Charity number: 275913


Description: Saint Francis Hospice is an independent charity leading the way in palliative care and serves around one million people living in Havering, Barking & Dagenham, Redbridge, Brentwood and West Essex. Our expertise covers many life limiting illnesses including cancer, Motor Neurone Disease, heart disease and respiratory illness. Patient choice is at the heart of everything we do. We?re all about enabling people to truly live with dignity. How and where we do that varies according to a person?s needs and preferences. It?s a complex operation requiring a range of joined up services. Last year we supported over 4,000 people and helped 1,405 new referrals. Our In-Patient Unit had 331 new admissions with an average length of stay of 14.3 days. Our Day Hospice accepted 152 new patients and supported 2,244 attendances. Community Palliative Care helped 615 new patients, delivered 2,287 visits and handled 9,249 telephone calls. Hospice at Home helped 429 new referrals and provided 2,694 home visits and 12,154 hours of care. Bereavement support helped 397 children and adults, delivered 1,875 counselling sessions and 625 telephone support calls. Our dedicated volunteers delivered a staggering 43,000 hours of support. We strive to reach the most vulnerable and marginalised, who are at risk of missing out of specialist care. Our holistic approach to palliative care makes Saint Francis unique and as a vital local service we rely on support from our community to continue our work.

Our charities range from big national charities to local schools, churches and social groups.

The donation amount varies from store to store. Most of the time you raise a percentage of what you spend - between 1% and 10% - whilst sometimes it's a fixed amount.

With some stores there are different rates or restrictions depending on what you buy - you can see more information on each store's page on our website.

Yes! You don't pay anything extra for your shopping, the donation is made at no extra cost to you.

It's also completely free for your charity. There are no joining or payment fees, so 100% of the donation will reach the charity.

We pay charities once a month by BACS via our payment partner, The Online Foundation.

You can view the status of every donation within your account. A donation will typically move from 'pending' to 'approved' to 'paid' over the course of a few months.

As a "thank you" for sending them sales and customers, our stores pay us a commission.

We use this commission to make a donation to your chosen charity.

We donate 50% of the commission we receive, with the other 50% used to fund the on-going development of Give as you Live Online, which is free to all charities and users.

All donation amounts we display represent the amount the charity will receive - a 5% donation means a 5% donation!
