Our work continued at a pace during 2016-2017, including our merger with National Council for Palliative Care on 1 July 2017. We know a bold new approach is needed and to confront the taboo subjects of death, dying and bereavement and the merger greatly strengthens our ability to do this.
We want to bring about the wide-reaching social and cultural transformation that is needed around how people in the UK are cared for at the end of their life. Our work is aimed at empowering individuals, communities and populations to embrace the ethos of hospice care and extend its breadth and reach to improve everyone’s experience of death, dying and bereavement.
We have made great progress in achieving our goal that everyone and those around them, no matter who they are, where they are or why they are dying or bereaved, gets the care and support they need when and how they want it.
