Need to talk?
St Nicholas Hospice Care Chaplaincy team is here to offer spiritual and emotional support to all those receiving care, their family and friends and to members of staff and volunteers.
Changes and challenges in life throw up some big spiritual and emotional questions. Losing the energy, control and freedom that we once took for granted can be a profound experience, and sometimes people need support at such difficult times.
St Nicholas Hospice Care has a full time Christian chaplain and a team of chaplains representing different faiths and those who have no religious affiliation. The team work as part of the Supporting People Team.
