The National Council for Palliative Care works for those involved in palliative, end-of-life and hospice care in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

NCPC believes everyone approaching end of life has the right to the highest-quality care and support. Its Dying Matters coalition of 30,000 members promotes public awareness of the importance of talking more openly about dying, death and bereavement.

What the judges said:

With people living longer and dealing more and more with debilitating conditions, having an organisation giving a voice to those experiencing end-of-life care is of fundamental importance. NCPC is an impressive charity, achieving excellent results on behalf of people struggling with difficult circumstances. It leads the way in its field and has a key role in influencing policy and driving quality.
