What is Hospice Care Week?

Hospice Care Week is an annual event where we recognise and celebrate Hospice UK and hospice care nationwide. It's an opportunity to show the world the value of support, of care and of what matters to us as individuals at the end of life when we need it most.

The week runs from 4 - 8 October 2021 and you can take part with your hospice, with your company or organisation, or as an individual. We'll provide you with messaging and materials to help you spread the word about hospice care, and encourage others to support hospices around the UK, and to become a Hospice UK supporter. 

Why is Hospice Care Week important?

Everybody needs support, encouragement and care. It’s vital at both the happiest and hardest times of our lives. But we need it most at the end of life, when time is precious. 

When we only have one chance to get it right, Hospice UK exists to ensure we do. That's why Hospice Care Week is so important. 

Let's make sure we are there - show your support and take part in Hospice Care Week 2021.
