We are the national charity for hospice care, supporting over 200 hospices in the UK. We believe that everyone matters throughout their life right up until they die, and that no one should die in avoidable pain or suffering.

Collectively hospices in the UK provide vital care to 200,000 people with terminal or life-limiting illnesses every year, as well as providing support for many of their loved ones. We work closely with them to support their vital work and to create a stronger voice for hospice care.

Get involved and support hospice care

Our impact 2016-2017

Our aim is to make sure that every child and adult with a life-limiting or terminal condition gets the very best care, no matter who they are, where they are or why they are ill, and we believe hospices are critical to achieving this.

In 2016-17 we launched our ambitious new strategy which aims to Open Up Hospice Care so that everyone who needs hospice care, gets it.
