There is huge variation in the quality of care that people receive at the end of their life. People whose needs are the most overlooked are often those who are least able to advocate for themselves. This is particularly true for people experiencing homelessness.

Co-produced by the Care Quality Commission and the Faculty for Homeless and Inclusion Health, this discussion paper explores the barriers to care for this vulnerable group, as well as looking at great examples of collaboration between hospices and hostels.
