About the Organisation

Northern Ireland Hospice has been delivering palliative care to local people across Northern Ireland for over 35 years.

Our hospice care services both in the community and in our buildings provide high quality, person-centred, holistic palliative care. We support and care for infants, children and adults who are adjusting to life living with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, up to their death and into family bereavement support.

Our team of specially trained healthcare professionals are made up of nurses, doctors, social workers, chaplains, occupational therapists, creative therapists and physiotherapists, all of whom, work together to support our patients’ physical, mental and spiritual well-being.

Our work also extends to families, enabling us to offer guidance and support to family members as they travel the journey with their loved one.
