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.




    How far have you been st.r..e..t...c..h..e...d?

    The thesaurus allies resilience to such traits as pliability, flexibility, suppleness, hardiness, strength, buoyancy, resisitance

    Our conference in November will be examing how resilience can be fostered at individual, team and organisational levels.

    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 exploring aspects of resilience.

    This year is hospice23's 30th Anniversary so there will also be the opportunity to celebrate this event with us.

    We invite you to join us for a stimulating and refreshing weekend.
