Ambitions for Palliative and End of Life Care: National Framework for Local Action (2021 - 2026)

Year published: 2021

A national framework for local action, first published in 2015, has been refreshed and relaunched today. 

The Ambitions Framework is distinctive for three key reasons.

First, it articulates six key ambitions that describe what good looks like in palliative and end of life care for people of all ages, including their carers and others who are bereaved.

Second, it was co-produced by a partnership of 27 national organisations, all striving towards the same goal and coming from a range of perspectives, including health and social care bodies across the statutory and voluntary sectors.

Third, following its publication, the partnership behind the Framework has remained strong and grown further, providing a catalyst for collective action at different levels.

In 2019 a review of the Framework was undertaken in preparation for the refresh. A survey of national and local organisations was cascaded through each of our partner organisations and their respective members. 125 surveys were completed in October 2019, of which 111 were from local organisations and 14 were from national organisations.
