How your pledge contributes to the Compassionate Charter

St Elizabeth Hospice is supporting the development of a Compassionate Charter for Suffolk, that will publicly encourage, enable and celebrate care for one another – particularly prescient during these times of unprecedented social change.

This county-wide approach to care in our communities will rely on the commitment from individuals, groups, organisations and schools who would like to work together to develop an inclusive town or city for end of life that publicly encourages, facilitates, supports and celebrates care for one another with a life-limiting illness and loss through compassionate action.
