We are a home from home. Come and go as you please, bring your pets, order takeaways … it’s all about you.
We provide free care for people of all ages living with a progressive life-limiting conditions, including cancer, Motor Neurone Disease, cardio-vascular diseases, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. This care is available in a range of settings, from overnight stays and respite to out-patient visits and home care.
Each year, we provide care and support for more than 500 patients, both adults and children, and their families, friends and over 200 carers. We have twelve en-suite adult rooms and four rooms for children for overnight stays, and there is accommodation available for families to stay in too. St Andrew’s is also home to a special temperature-controlled bedroom, designed for children to stay with us following death until their funeral, allowing families to say farewell in their own time and in comfort, with staff on hand to provide support and advice.
St Andrew’s Hospice is a registered charity (No 1011117 England), employing about 140 staff and supported by more than 500 volunteers. It means we can provide 24-hour care, seven days a week. It currently costs £5.5-million a year to run the hospice, and only 18% is funded by the Government; we rely on the generosity of our community to fund the rest.
We are independent of the NHS but work with healthcare organisations.
St Andrew’s, our adult services, delivers care to people aged 18 and above with a life- limiting illness who live in Grimsby, Cleethorpes, Immingham and surrounding areas.
Andy’s, the children’s and young person’s service, delivers care to those aged from birth to 25 years old who live in Northern Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire, Lincolnshire, Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire.
Anyone can refer – the patient, their family or GP, the community nurse, a consultant and so on – in writing, by telephone or by visiting us.
All of our care and support is free, paid for mainly through the generosity of the public.
