Life’s short

Life’s short, for all of us.

We all want to do what we love and make the most of every minute. For children with life-limiting conditions and their families, “Life’s Short” has a poignant meaning: they simply do not have time to waste.

Children’s Hospices across the UK help these children enjoy the simple moments in life that we all cherish. Join us this Children’s Hospice Week 21-27 May to create more moments that matter.

What can I do?

Share your own moment using #LifesShort to show your support.

Donate to create more moments that matter in children’s hospices.

Why should I donate?

As the UK charity for seriously ill children and their families, we know of the tough financial situation faced by many children’s hospices and palliative care services – all are charities dependent on donations to continue their vital work with children and young people. That’s why the funds raised by Children’s Hospice Week will support the lifeline work of children’s hospices.

Children’s Hospice Week

Children’s Hospice Week is the only week in the year dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the 49,000 children across the UK living with life-limiting conditions, and the lifeline services that support them.
