Here to help young adults in our region who are living with terminal and progressive illnesses.
If you’re aged 14 to 25-years-old and have been diagnosed with an incurable illness, the world can seem like a dark place. You’re certainly not a child anymore but you’re not quite ready to face the world of care as an adult.
At St Elizabeth Hospice we recognise that a different approach is required in how we offer services and opportunities for these young adults and have now created ‘Zest’ to focus how we offer care, and grow support, for this age group going forward.
Zest has been created with young adults in mind. We believe that there should be a tailor made service for young adults and a way for young people to support the hospice and its work in their own way. Zest will not only give a focus to our fundraising but also create an opportunity for other young adults to engage with the hospice.
There are many ways you can help support Zest. You can shop in our Zest shops in Ipswich and Colchester, donate goods, take part in Zest events, follow us @wearezest1, share our stories or fundraise for us.
