Mike Warren started this petition to Boris Johnson and

Hospices are an essential part of our healthcare system. They provide care for people with life limiting illnesses and help people and their families as they approach the end of life. But most of Hospice funding doesn't come from the government or the NHS, it's raised through fundraising.

Coronavirus has resulted in hospices having to cease huge parts of their fundraising. This is going to leave a massive gap in funding that some won't recover from. They are all looking to reduce costs wherever possible but, the longer this situation goes on the more likely it is that some hospices will close.

The government has bailed out banks and companies in the past. We want the government to guarantee the lost projected fundraising income for all UK hospices for the period affected by the COVID-19 and coronavirus.
