Join our Community of Practice
Hospice UK brings together organisations to share their work, build skills, knowledge and develop confidence via the National Transition Community of Practice.
This helps us to transform care for young people with complex and life-limiting conditions. It also helps us extend our reach and further influence partnerships across all care providers and key stakeholders. We regularly learn together, and interact both virtually, and face to face via annual meetings.
Register to join us in our supportive learning community, which will help you feel informed and motivated.

Hospice UK and Together for Short Lives are working together to provide up-to-date information about Transition via a quarterly newsletter.
This features events, latest articles, best practice, research and other useful resources.
National Transition Professionals Meetings
Also alongside Together for Short Lives, we chair and facilitate quarterly Transition Meetings for Professionals working in the palliative care sector. This is available to those working across the UK.
These meetings are for professionals from a range of backgrounds who care for young people with complex and life-limiting conditions and their families.
Feedback from participants has included:
"I am finding the meetings really helpful. It feels good to know how many people there are out there who have so much experience".
"I think these meetings are so important; without them I think knowledge and information would get lost. There are so many people doing incredible work in the world of Transition but it is only through meetings like this do we get to hear about them. I really appreciate being part of them".
"Really good opportunity to network and find out more about the great work that is going on out there".
"Updates from different people around the country and in different organisations, networking and opportunities for future work/linking in with others".
