Compassionate Communities

Compassion is at the heart of all we do at St Luke’s, and we know that often it is the ‘little things’ that can help make a big difference to people going through difficult times.

With the aim of helping everyone to live well within their communities to the very end of their lives, we want to develop compassionate communities across the areas where we deliver our care.

A compassionate community is one in which everyone recognises that as individuals we all have a role in supporting each other, particularly during periods of crisis or loss.

Reaching out to others not only reduces feelings of loneliness and isolation, it helps meet the needs of those who wish to be cared for in place of choice and stay within their communities. Whether you are a neighbour, friend, colleague or family member, we all have a part to play in helping each other.
