More About The Organisation
There are an estimated 23,500 children and young people in the UK who will die before they reach adulthood. Some of them will die when very young; others deteriorate slowly over many years. Families caring for these children and young people - often 24 hours a day, seven days a week - can feel under enormous emotional, physical and financial strain. Our vision is for all these children and their families to have access to the best possible care and support at home or in a children's hospice.
We support all children's hospice services in the UK by campaigning and lobbying governments to ensure their voice is heard; helping their care staff to continue to be at the cutting edge of children's hospice care; making everyone aware of their vital work; and raising funds to ensure they are sustainable.
Our vision is for all life-limited and life-threatened children, young people and their families in the UK have awareness of, and access to quality children's hospice care.
