About us

St Barnabas House

St Barnabas House is your local hospice, located in Worthing, West Sussex. We’re a local charity which aims to provide expert care for local people, like you.


We believe everyone facing life-limiting illness should receive the care and support they deserve. Our mission is to provide dignity, comfort and choice for adults who need our specialised, supportive care.

This is what it takes to provide hospice care

Your generous support helped to provide specialist supportive care for 1,786 local people and their families at the hospice and in the comfort of their own homes last year.

Your hospice care team

The hospice team consists of nurses, doctors, social workers, counsellors, a Chaplain, physiotherapists, complementary therapists, an Artist-in-Residence, Hospice at Home team and 1,740 dedicated volunteers, people like you.

Hospice staff will discuss your treatment and care with you, giving you the opportunity to express your wishes and address your concerns.

We appreciate that this is a difficult time for you and your family, and that some things may be difficult to talk about.

We aim to be sensitive and supportive in our conversations with you by respecting your individual beliefs, lifestyle and culture.
