If you are caring for a child with a serious illness and need help or advice, or just someone to talk to, our helpline and family support hub is here for you.

Help a family enjoy the moments that matter

This Christmas you can give a gift which will give seriously ill children and their families the vital support they need – allowing families to focus on creating moments of joy together

Support our work this Christmas

Our Patron Mason Mount is joined by mums, dads, brothers and sisters of seriously ill children to explain why this Christmas, your support will help families create moments of joy and lasting memories they’ll treasure forever. Because for them, every moment really is a gift.

We are here to support professionals caring for seriously ill children, young people and families

We support all the professionals who are there for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families. We bring professionals together, share practice and offer resources and tools to support your work with children and families.

We need your help

Please give your money, your time or your voice, and help us change lives. Together we will make a lifetime of difference for children with short lives, helping every family get the very best care and support, every step of their journey – no matter how short.

Helping us get the best out of life
