Welcome to hospice23

  • Be inspired, empowered and enlivened to be the person YOU are meant to be

    Founded in 1986, hospice23 aims to inspire all who work in palliative and end of life care through providing "cutting edge" residential conferences, study days and retreats.

    Recognising the ever growing need to provide excellent learning opportunities alongside space for personal reflection and restoration, hospice23 aspires to create spaces within each conference where people can learn, laugh and grow.

    We have recently become a membership organisation, and so it has been necessary to update our membership and direct debit forms. We would like to  invite you to become a member - the forms are on the website but if you have any questions please do contact us at bookings@hospice23.org


    If you are already a  friend you will need to update your details, if you regularly donate (thank you!) but that will need updating too - please contact the Administrator if require additional information or forms.




    Our  2016 Conference took place in November at Hothorpe. Together we 'Explored Resilience'.

    Here are some of the feedback comments:

    • very interesting and challenging
    • brilliant venue - so friendly and peaceful
    • fantastic
    • excellent speakers
    • resilience now making sense in all aspects

    Our conference in October 2017 will be at the same venue and we will be looking at 'Suffering and Wellbeing for those working in palliative and end of life care'.


    Hothorpe Hall, the conference venue is surrounded by Leicestershire countryside yet within easy reach of motorways and rail transport, making it an ideal setting for a mixture of rest and relaxation alongside first class speakers.


    Our AGM Study Day will be held at Royal Trinity Hospice in Clapham.
