By acting together we have a stronger collective voice.
We are recognised across the UK as the leading lobbying and campaigning organisation for the children’s palliative care sector. We provide a collective voice to raise awareness of the needs of children and young people with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions and their families.
We work with a variety of lobbying and campaigning groups to ensure that approaches to palliative care across the UK are as consistent as possible. These include:
The Association for Paediatric Palliative Medicine
The APPM represents doctors working in paediatric palliative care across all care settings in the UK. This includes both paediatricians with an interest in paediatric palliative medicine and other doctors, particularly GPs with a specialist interest, many of whom are working in children's hospices.
Wellchild helps seriously ill children, young people and their families throughout the UK using programmes of care, support and research.
