About SHC

Established in 1995, Singapore Hospice Council is a registered charity and an Institution of a Public Character. We are an umbrella body representing organisations that actively provide hospice and palliative care in Singapore.

SHC is committed to improving the lives of patients with serious life-limiting illnesses and to giving support to the loved ones of these patients.

What Does SHC do?

At Singapore Hospice Council (SHC), we are committed to improving the lives of patients with serious life-limiting illnesses and to empowering the journey towards the end-of-life for our patients and their families, as well as caregiver support in Singapore. Together with the 25 member organisations, we want to be the collective voice of the palliative care community and raise awareness of palliative care. 

With the goal to help the community “Live well and leave well”, we provide easy access to resources on outstanding hospice and palliative care services in Singapore. Ensuring vital information regarding associated inpatient hospices is readily available at all times. 

We, at SHC, understand the emotional and physical challenges that accompany these circumstances, and strive to offer comfort, care, and support. Additionally, we recognise the invaluable role of patients’ loved ones, and we extend our assistance to help them navigate the complexities and emotions during this difficult journey.

For those who wish to offer support, share information, or help at events, we welcome individuals from all walks of life to join our volunteer programmes. No prior experience in hospice or palliative care is required as SHC provides all necessary training and resources to ensure you’re well-prepared. Our volunteer roles include event ushering, photography, videography, and various administrative support, allowing you to use your specific skills and interests to contribute effectively. Join us today to grow personally and professionally by gaining new skills and making meaningful connections.
