Discover how we’re giving back. And how to help us help others
Hospices of Hope is the only UK charity dedicated to supporting the development of palliative and end of life care in South and East Europe. Their vision is for all patients suffering from terminal or life-limiting illnesses to have access to specialist hospice care services, free of charge – because everyone deserves to live and die with dignity and without pain.
In the countries Hospices of Hope partner with, the vast majority of people with terminal or life-limiting illnesses do not have access to free specialist care at the end of their lives. They are left to die without their pain and symptoms being treated and without any emotional or spiritual support. Since the charity’s conception in 1991, access to free hospice care in South and East Europe has started to improve, and through their country partners, more than 70,000 patients and their families have received help in this time.
But there is still a long way to go and access to hospice care is still extremely limited. Hospices of Hope has a vital role to play in continuing to develop better access to palliative care services in the region, through the use of our knowledge, advocacy skills, fundraising and networking experience.
At Team Umbrella, we believe that giving back means action. Our commitment to social responsibility sees us travel thousands of miles each year to reach communities in need. In this way, our dedicated team from the United Kingdom makes a profound impact on the lives of those facing life-limiting or terminal illnesses.
From running fun outdoor activites, to offering emotional support, our team members contribute their time and skills to make a meaningful difference. Our collaboration with Hospices of Hope is creating positive change in the world. Join us on our journey, where every volunteer hour means hope for those in their most challenging moments. Hope that transcends borders and transforms lives.
