  • Campaign

The New West Hospice Society, founded in 2016, is dedicated to building a grassroots hospice initiative from the community level up. Our purpose is to acknowledge and affirm that dying, death and grief are part of life across the life span. We aim to raise awareness and understanding of the needs – medical, social, practical, spiritual – of people living with a life limiting illness and their families.
