Bereavement Support Line
Our Bereavement Support Line, in partnership with the HSE, is there to provide connection, comfort and support to all those grieving.
Irish Hospice Foundation
Every death matters and we only have one chance to get it right. We are working to ensure the best end-of-life and bereavement care, for all. From advocacy and education, to our vital services like Nurses for Night Care and our Bereavement Support Line, we believe in the importance of dying well and grieving well wherever the place.
How we are Making a Difference
We fund the Nurses for Night Care service for people dying with illnesses other than cancer, so they can receive expert nursing care and support at night in their own homes in their final days.
