The leading charity in Lincolnshire providing palliative and end-of-life care, St Barnabas Hospice's belief is that dying with dignity and having choices is a fundamental part of life.

The hospice aims to ensure that everyone who comes through its doors receives dignified and compassionate care. It opened more than 35 years ago and more than 80,000 people across the county have since received free end-of-life care and support.

With over 300 staff and 1,000 volunteers, the hospice was eager to keep its people connected during the pandemic. It set up coffee and catch-up meetings, a staff Facebook group and buddy system that paired up employees bi-weekly, allowing everyone the chance to get to know their colleagues across the business.

The hospice also has a diversity and inclusion forum that meets every eight weeks. The group consists of staff at all levels, including executive team representatives, who confirm, challenge and discuss how it is supporting diversity and inclusion and the ways in which it could improve.

The newly launched workforce strategy has a clear equality, diversity and Inclusion policy, with an action plan and desired outcomes. The hospice also recruited an engagement officer, who's role is to look at inclusion in the workplace.

My organisation encourages charitable activities

As a charity, St Barnabas Hospice Trust has had to review its fundraising efforts, moving some into encouraging community initiatives. One event was a cheery, free-to-enter "reindeer run" that all Lincolnshire schools and childcare providers could get involved in. Children were given reindeer ears and a Rudolf nose to lift their spirits.
