The Sara Lee Trust aims to improve the quality of life of people living with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses in Hastings and Rother, East Sussex, through the provision of specialist counselling and psychological support, complementary therapies, and therapeutic group activities. We also provide our services to the carers and families of the patients we support.

We are the only provider of this combined range of specialised services in the region, and are also the dedicated provider of counselling (including end-of-life) and complementary therapy services to patients of St.Michaels Hospice and the Rye, Winchelsea and District Memorial Hospital.

We are committed to making our service accessible to all in an area where deprivation, early death and health inequalities are significantly worse than national average.

The Trust provides:

  • specialist counselling (including end-of-life counselling)
  • complementary therapies
  • a Community Therapy service, offering visits to those unable to attend our treatment rooms, in their own homes.
  • weekly and monthly therapeutic group activities

The Trust does not receive any statutory funding for our core services and relies solely on fundraising and voluntary donations. We support over 600 people a year, many of whom are in palliative care.
