The Association of Palliative Day Services

The Association of Palliative Day Services, known as APDS, is the first national representative body formed exclusively for palliative day service professionals in the UK. 

As an association we are a powerful, collective voice.  We believe that together we can be an authority in shaping national guidelines and policies, an educator in cultivating public interest and understanding, and an ambassador for our dedicated providers, and the integral service they provide within palliative care.

We aim to challenge, inspire, and empower our members.  We do this by nurturing a supportive community for day service professionals, and by providing access to the latest research developments, training, and educational opportunities.

We are proud to be a multidisciplinary membership organisation that welcomes the diverse range of professionals working within palliative day services.
