An Independent Charity
Serving the multi-cultural/ethnic community of Harrow and Northern Brent.
St Luke’s Hospice is located in Kenton Grange. Established in 2000, we have cared for over 1,500 patients within our in-patient and day care units.
Providing all of our services free of charge, we rely heavily on voluntary contributions from the Harrow and Brent community to ensure we remain open.
What is Hospice Care? Hospice care is based on the simple idea that a dying patient is a living person, with unique physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs.
Providing care Free of Charge, we help anybody and everybody - the rich, the poor, young or old, regardless of faith or belief in a compassionate, peaceful environment.
St Luke's hospice exists to support those needs as well as the needs of their families and carers.
