About us:

St Wilfrid’s Hospice provides end of life support to the population of Eastbourne and the surrounding parts of East Sussex, from our stunning hospice building and through our highly skilled community teams. We are rated an ‘outstanding’ provider by the Care Quality Commission and have a clear vision of reaching increasing numbers of local patients and their families, in close collaboration with our community.

We are dedicated to improving EDI within our workforce and ensuring there are no barriers to accessing our services or to working within the organisation. If you feel as passionate about this as we do and have a proactive mindset, we would love to hear from you.
