Hospice UK’s Communications Team is here to work with you, offer advice, share our materials and co-ordinate key moments in the year, including Dying Matters Awareness Week and Hospice Care Week.

How we can help you


We’re the national charity for hospice and end of life care, and we use our national platform to celebrate the fantastic work of hospices, and to champion the mission of good quality end of life care for all.

Interactive forums will enable you to share knowledge and request support from fellow hospice and palliative care colleagues

Our CharityComms membership benefits you too

As a member of Hospice UK, you can access our membership of CharityComms. CharityComms provide fantastic resources and a brilliant programme of events, training and conferences, as well as an excellent mentoring scheme.

Crisis communications toolkit


Our Crisis Communications toolkit, last updated in 2018, provides a comprehensive overview of managing a PR crisis in a hospice context. Every scenario is unique – but our guide should give you some good rules of thumb, and helpful preparation tips.

We are always at the end of the phone or email too if you want to let us know about a challenging situation in your area, or simply as a sounding board.
