We’re the UK’s leading charity caring for people living with any terminal illness, and their families.
Our nurses work night and day in people’s homes across the UK, providing hands-on care and vital emotional support. Our hospices offer specialist round-the-clock care in a friendly, welcoming environment - whether people are staying in the hospice, or just coming in for the day. And our trained Helper volunteers offer day-to-day support, whether that’s a cup of tea or just being there as a friendly ear.
We’re also here to make sure everyone affected by a terminal illness gets all the information and support they need, from our free support line to our award-winning online information.
Our Palliative Care Knowledge Zone also provides vital information and support for health and care professionals caring for people at end of life.
