About us

Hospice UK is the national charity for hospice care, supporting over 200 hospices in the UK. We believe that everyone matters throughout their life right up until they die, and that no one should die in avoidable pain or suffering. 

Our aim is to make sure that every child and adult with a life-limiting or terminal condition gets the very best care, no matter who they are, where they are or why they are ill, and we believe hospices are critical to achieving this. Collectively hospices in the UK care for around 360,000 people every year – patients and their families and carers – and we work closely with them to support their vital work, share best practice and to create a stronger national voice for hospice care.

Our strategic priorities are to:

  • extend the reach and enable hospice quality care to be delivered in any setting
  • tackle inequality and widen access to hospice care
  • work with communities to build capacity and resilience to care for those at the end of their life
  • empower a strong, dynamic and responsive hospice sector.
