In 2015-2016 we:

  • Ensured hospices are better informed and able to use national policy to influence the care people in their communities receive at the end of life, by producing briefings and guidance on key policy developments – including fundraising policy, the devolution of healthcare in England and the government’s response to the Choice Review.
  • Worked with other national charities to ensure end of life care is prioritised by the governments in all four UK nations.
  • Shared knowledge and expertise through publications, events and grants to build the confidence and knowledge of over 133 hospice professionals to care for people with dementia and develop the services they need.
