This guide is an introduction to the topic of work and terminal illness. This guide is designed to provide insights and information that employers can use to develop policy to support managers and employees working with terminal illness. This guide sets out the most important things you should think about, including:

● What people working with a terminal illness tell us about their experience and needs at work;

● What managers need to know, and how to support them in their role;

● How to build a positive and compassionate working culture around terminal illness;

● How to make the case for a dedicated policy to directors or trustees.
