9th - 15th October

Hospice Care Week

Hospice Care Week is an annual awareness-raising event taking place from 9th to 15th October this year to raise the profile of hospice care across the UK.

The theme for this year is ‘We are hospice care’ and hospices will be highlighting the many and varied aspects of hospice care and what it can mean to people, their families and communities.

From nurses to volunteers, chefs to chaplains, corporate partners to carers, the theme ‘We are hospice care’ is about celebrating everyone involved in
providing and supporting hospice care.

We want people to understand why hospice care is so important, so we're going all out to show people exactly what we do. Our communications team are planning to run a tweet-a-thon throughout the week, with the aim of following a particular service each day of the week.
