About the event

This year's theme is 'This Is What It Takes'

Hospice Care Week is an annual week of activity to raise the profile of hospice care. Each year we join Hospice UK and over 200 charitable hospices across the UK for a week of celebration and action, which aims to change people’s perceptions of hospice care.

The week gives us an excuse to talk about the extraordinary work that hospices do at the heart of their communities. It is also an opportunity to inspire action – inviting our supporters to get involved by volunteering, donating and showing they care on social media.

This year, the theme ‘This Is What It Takes’ will be highlighting while hospice care is provided free for people with life-limiting conditions and their families, it is not cheap and takes a lot of skills, people and resources. All week on social media, we will give people a ‘behind the scenes’ glimpse of the sheer diversity that goes into the compassionate care provided to people at the end of their lives.

Look out for our posts, using the hashtag #ThisIsWhatItTakes, and please share to help other understand what it takes to run Jersey Hospice Care.
