The End of Life Partnership is an organisation which aims to:

  • lead, educate and facilitate excellence and best practice in palliative and end of life care
  • influence and enable our communities to live and die well
The End of Life Partnership (EoLP) works towards making death, dying and loss a normal part of life, and increase the knowledge, skills and confidence of health, social and voluntary workforces and members of the general public. EoLP supports stakeholders in palliative and end of life care to deliver their outcome frameworks and local priorities, supported and informed by strong community, patient, public, clinical influence and engagement.

We wish to recruit up to a further three members to join our Chair and Trustees in creating a strong governing body: the Board of Trustees.

  • Third sector organisations, and partnerships across public and third sector
  • Professional education, evaluation, audit and research
  • Commissioning services
  • Information Technology and/or Digital Media
We are particularly keen to add to our diverse board of trustees, and we welcome applications from all sections of the community.

We will pay trustees’ travel expenses and provide an induction into the End of Life Partnership’s work. You will be expected to contribute on average one to two days per month. Formal meetings are usually held in the early evening at the   EoLP’s base near Sandbach, Cheshire.

The End of Life Partnership (EoLP) are celebrating their teams scooping first and second place at the Northern Lights Dementia Awards.

The prestigious awards, which cover the whole of the North of England, were judged by a multi-disciplinary panel of professionals and community members with an interest in dementia.

Winners in the “Dying Well Project” category were EoLP’s Advanced Dementia Support Team. The team, founded in partnership with St. Luke’s Hospice, East Cheshire Hospice and Dementia UK, work to promote a compassionate approach to the care of people with advanced dementia.

The Namaste Project, a joint venture between EOLP and St Luke’s Hospice in Winsford, works to engage with people with advanced dementia through sensory input and was awarded the runner up place.

Sian Harrison, Advanced Dementia Support Team Leader, EoLP said “We are delighted to have been recognised in this way, I am extremely proud of the team. We have been able to demonstrate the value of a multi-disciplinary team in promoting the increase in the knowledge, skills and confidence of caring for someone with advancing dementia and end of life issues. The award is an endorsement of the pioneering vision the collaborative had in setting up this unique project.”
