Helping support families
Giving families, children and young people support every step of the way
We are the UK’s leading charity for the 49,000 children living with life-limiting conditions, and their families. We are here to ensure that no child or family
is ever left behind when it comes to getting vital care and support.
Children’s Hospice Week is dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the vital services across the UK that support the 49,000 seriously ill children and young people who will have short lives.
We all want to do what we love and make the most of every minute. Join us this Children’s Hospice Week to create more moments that matter for seriously-ill children.
Share your own moment using #LifesShort on social media to show your support, or make a donation to support the work of hospice services across the UK.
If you are parent or carer who looks after or knows a child or young person expected to have a short life, we’re here to help.
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.
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.
No family should face the heart-break of knowing their child will die young alone. Families don’t know what the future may hold and can feel isolated and lonely. Your support can help children like Frank and his family to get the very best care and support – so they can make the most of ever moment.
