Our vision, mission and strategy

We want a society that supports everyone through dying and grief.

A society where the voices of people who are grieving or dying are heard, where everyone gets the care and support they need and services are integrated with the wider healthcare system.

A society where everybody can have open and honest conversations with their friends and family to help them prepare for death and where people with a life-limiting diagnosis are supported to live well in the time they have left.

Where trusted resources, information and bereavement services are accessible to everybody who needs them and where communities across the country provide compassion and support to those in need so that nobody grieves alone.

Our three key goals

To help deliver our vision, we have set ourselves three key goals. These are:

  • Better grief support for everyone
  • Helping people who are dying to live well
  • Speaking up for people who are grieving or dying
