Farleigh Hospice provide support and care to people suffering life-limiting illnesses and also to those who have been bereaved. Their services include symptom management, psychosocial support and pre and post bereavement support. Their core principles include being caring, respectful, innovative and dedicated.

As part of their plan to communicate their values better across the organisation, the Chief Executive, Alison Stevens, has a bi-weekly blog that is used to share company updates, good news stories and thank people for outstanding work. It is posted on the intranet, emailed and paper copies put on notice boards and sent to their charity shops across Essex. Alison was appointed Chief Executive of Farleigh Hospice in July 2013. She has worked in the NHS, voluntary and private sectors, holding leadership positions for 27 years.
