Mission Statement

Butterwick is a registered charity (no: 1044816) that aims to improve the quality of life for those who have a life limiting illness and their families and to help them relate positively to every challenge they may encounter during their illness and to see death as part of life's journey.

In particular, we will:

  • Provide specialist palliative care to children and adults with life limiting conditions.
  • Ensure each person receives care in a homely environment.
  • Provide holistic centred care by responding to and respecting the patients' and families' individual physical, social, cultural, educational, spiritual and emotional needs throughout the illness and bereavement.
  • Acknowledge and respect the way the family cares for the relative and endeavour to continue the chosen pattern of care.
  • Work together in developing an environment based on support and mutual respect.
  • Reflect on experiences of care in order to improve the quality of our service.
  • Work together with other service providers to ensure continuity of care.
