Hospice boost for diversity
Cultures where English is not a first language could be missing out on support and end of life care.
The Heart of Kent Hospice, in Aylesford, cares for more than 1,400 people each year, but is appealing for volunteers to help create its first ever accessibility advisory panel.
The purpose of the panel is to discover which local cultures and communities may be missing out on hospice care and encourage them to use their service.
Sarah Pugh, chief executive (pictured) said: “The panel will identify local cultures and communities and understand their needs and put in place plans to improve access to our services.”
After a year the group will write up a report to the charity’s trustees. To find out more email email@example.com or call 01622 772200 ext. 206.
