National Association of Complementary Therapists in Hospice and Palliative Care (NACTHPC)?

Many complementary therapy services are formed as part of the local hospice but The Sara Lee Trust is unusual as we are a completely separate Charity to the local Hospice in St Leonards-on-Sea.

Very early on The Sara Lee Trust realised the importance of the work being undertaken by the team and the need to liaise and network with other complementary therapists. To this end, the Trust, in 1996/7, carried out a survey to find who else was providing complementary therapies. From this, a small group was set up to offer mutual support, the sharing of good practice and developing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) study days.

This quickly grew into a more structured organisation in the format of the National Association of Complementary Therapists in Hospice and Palliative Care (NACTHPC). Please see the 'related links' for more information

Deborah Kelly, The Sara Lee Trust Co-ordinator at the time was very involved in establishing this organisation and was one of the former committee members.

The Sara Lee Trust is still a member of this organisation which has continued to grow and has developed small regional groups; a national yearly conference and works closely with Help the Hospices. Please see the 'related links' for more information

My counsellor has supported me wonderfully well through some very challenging weeks with the death of my father along with a deteriorating terminal cancer condition. The opportunity to 'talk' has been so helpful and I always return home with new positive thoughts or reflections prompted because of his skills and patience listening to me. Thanks so much. I approached The Sara Lee Trust to get help for my father who is in total denial about his terminal lung cancer. However I ended up having the therapy to learn to cope with my father. The jigsaw of my life is complete now and I cannot thank you enough.
