Care Committed to Me

It is clear that more proactive engagement is required on behalf of commissioners, statutory and third sector service providers, practitioners and wider society to address the end of life care needs of everybody in our diverse communities. This practical report sets the wheels in motion. It examines a range of approaches and insights into delivering and embedding personalised care for children, young people and adults living with advanced illness towards the end of their lives. It focuses on people experiencing homelessness, people who identify as LGBT and Gypsies and Travellers, which were three of the groups highlighted in the 2016 Care Quality Commission report. Everyone, no matter who they are, deserves the best quality care at the end of life, and it is our shared responsibility to tackle inequalities. This resource will help us all to make that a reality.
