Our Compassionate Employers programme
Hospice UK’s Compassionate Employers Workplace Wellbeing programme is designed to help organisations look after their people and support employees through grief, dying and caring.
As the national charity for hospice care, funds generated from our programme support our exceptional hospices across the UK. Your contribution ensures that hospices can continue delivering crucial end-of-life care to everyone who needs it.
"Supporting our employees’ overall wellbeing is fundamental to our diversity, equity and inclusion strategy. We are pleased to participate in Hospice UK’s Compassionate Employers programme.”
Sarah Boddey, Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer, Northern Trust.

We build on your existing workplace wellbeing and employee support offer to help you join up policies, peer support and communications.
The Compassionate Employers programme will help you foster a proactive, positive environment where supporting a colleague is no longer awkward or uncomfortable.
You will receive an organisation self-assessment tool, feedback meeting and tailored recommendations to highlight your strengths, priorities and areas of opportunity for the year.
During the assessment process your organisation will be benchmarked against best practice criteria for practical support, peer support and engagement. This results in a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award which an organisation can promote both internally and externally.
Year-round access to our online members’ hub, where all your employees can find information and support resources on bereavement, grief, caring and terminal illness.
With digital copies of all our resources, advice and topical content you can help your employees navigate difficult topics with compassion.
Training workshops tailored for your employees (e.g. line managers, Mental Health First Aiders), in the formats you need. Our team of skilled facilitators can deliver training via Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, or face-to-face.
You will have access to dedicated expertise on hand to support your employees' wellbeing, bereavement and grief training.
Through our regular Members Forum and Member Events, you'll get the opportunity to learn from and network with other Compassionate Employers.
Joining our programme costs between £2,000-£5,000 +VAT p.a., depending on your organisation’s size and type. As a member you can access all the opportunities and benefits listed above.
