Contact our helpline service by phone, live chat or email for advice and support
We’re a lifeline for families like Alfie’s caring for a seriously ill child. If you need help or advice, or just someone to talk to, our helpline and family support hub is here for you.
This Christmas many families across the UK, caring for a seriously ill child, are feeling isolated with nowhere to turn. No family should suffer through their child’s short life alone. They deserve to be able to treasure every moment they have together.
Together for Short Lives cannot save a child’s life. But with your support we can save a family from a lifetime of suffering. For every pound you give, M&S Food will double your donation, up to a maximum of £50,000. Which means we could support twice as many families like Alfie’s this Christmas.
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.
For families like Alfie’s every moment counts. This year Kieron, Louise and daughter Mila Rose will be making Christmas extra special, as they don’t know how many more they’ll have left with Alfie. Find out how your support can make a difference.
