Our Vision

We want everyone in Central Lancashire facing life-shortening illness to experience a good quality of life and, when the time comes, comfort and dignity in death.  This means that care, support and information needs to be available when and where it matters most for each person and those important to them.  Where desirable, we want to enable living and dying well at home.

We believe that this can be achieved by organisations working together locally and where people, families, friends and neighbours have the opportunity and resources to help themselves and each other. We will continue to work hard with local communities, the NHS, charities, businesses, organisations and Hospice UK to fulfil this vision.
