About Hospice UK

Hospice UK is the national charity for hospice and palliative care. We work to ensure all adults and children living with a terminal or life-shortening illness receive the care and support they need, when they need it.

Our vision is hospice care for every person in need.

We believe that everyone, no matter who they are, where they are or why they are ill, should receive the best possible care at the end of their life. No one should die in avoidable pain or suffering.

Our mission is to enable hospice care to transform the way society cares for the dying and those around them.

To empower individuals, communities and populations to embrace the ethos of hospice care and extend its breadth and reach to improve everyone’s experience of death, dying and bereavement.

Who we are

We champion and support the work of more than 200 member organisations, which provide hospice care across the UK, so that they can deliver the highest quality of care to people with terminal or life-limiting conditions, and support their families.

Increasingly, hospice care is provided outside of hospice buildings. Hospice teams work in a wide range of settings – local charitable hospices; nursing homes; hospitals – and the vast majority of hospice care is provided in peoples’ homes.

Hospice UK supports the breadth, dynamism and flexibility of modern hospice care by: influencing Government and decision makers; improving quality of care through sharing of good practice; and providing training, education and grant programmes.

We work collaboratively with our members to support their vital work and to create a stronger voice for hospice care in the UK. We also support the development of hospice and palliative care worldwide.

Our strategy

Our ambitious strategy is the blueprint for how we can achieve the transformation that is needed and sets out the following four strategic goals that will be driving our work over the next five years:

  1. Extend our reach and enable hospice quality care to be delivered in any setting.
  2. Tackle inequality and widen access to hospice care.
  3. Work with communities to build capacity and resilience to care for those at the end of life.
  4. Empower a strong, dynamic and responsive hospice sector.

“Hospice care aims to affirm life and death. It means working with and within local communities to tailor palliative care around the needs of each adult and child with a terminal or life-shortening condition, whatever that may be, and extends to supporting their carers, friends and family before and after bereavement. Hospice care is provided by multi-disciplinary teams of staff and volunteers who offer expert support that places equal emphasis on someone’s clinical, physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs with the understanding that everyone will be different.”
