how independent hospices can raise more income from voluntary and donated sources to fund their work
In 2010 the think tank Demos published a report entitled ‘Dying for Change’ which highlighted some of the challenges facing hospices in the future. Help the Hospices responded to this by setting up the Commission into the Future of Hospice Care to provide guidance, information and options for hospices to inform their strategic position and offerings in the next 10 to 20 years. Opportunities exist across the UK to improve the experience of people who are approaching the end of their life, and that of their families and carers. The Commission is considering how hospices need to develop over the next three to five years to be prepared for the challenges facing them in the future.
