Our vision and mission

Our vision is hospice care for every person in need

Our vision is hospice care for every person in need.

We want to bring about the wide-reaching social and cultural transformation that is needed in how adults and children in the UK are cared for at the end of their life.

We are committed to empowering individuals and communities to embrace the ethos of hospice care and extend its breadth and reach to improve everyone’s experience of death, dying and bereavement.

Our mission is to enable hospice care to transform the way society cares for the dying and those around them.

Around one in three of us has a friend or family member who has benefitted from hospice care, and more than 80 per cent of the public believe that everyone with a terminal illness should have a right to hospice care.

As the hospice movement, we must retain everything we have achieved to date but grow and evolve to meet the needs of those at the end of their life today and those in the future, whatever their needs might be.
