Women are the volunteers, doctors, nurses, patients, family members, supporters, organisers and leaders across our community who inspire and galvanise compassionate care across East Sussex.

We've compiled just a few statistics for International Women's Day just from our hospice but the tangible and profound positive effect of women in the workplace is felt all around the world.

  • 5 out of 9 trustees providing oversight to our hospice are women.
  • 2 of our 4 directors leading the hospice are female.
  • More than 70% of our managers are women across sectors from retail to clinical, volunteering to human resources. 
  • In fact 72% of the people who visit this website are women - that's 37,400 female visitors a year!

Thank you to all of the incredible women who make St Wilfrid’s work. You make East Sussex a more thoughtful, compassionate and better place to live for all, all year round.
