Why it matters

Hospice Care Week is our chance to celebrate the amazing work across the UK of more than 200 hospices, who provide help, support and care to over 200,000 patients, carers and families every year.

They make a difference. They support people with life-limiting conditions and are there for their loved ones, friends and colleagues too.

Hospice Care Week is our week to show why hospices matter, as these stories below prove.
