About us

We want to help every child and family living with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition get the very best care and support they can so they can make the most of every moment together


Making an impact

By supporting and speaking up for children and families, and those that support and care for them, we are driving for a better quality of life and end of life for children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. We want to help change lives.

Hope’s Story: fighting for space

Hope Roden and her family were supported by our Advocacy Project via Richard House. Through a drop-in service hosted at Richard House we were able to help find them a happy home.

  • In 2018-19 we saw a 59% rise in calls to our helpline from families needing support
  • £14 million increase in the size of the Children's Hospice Grant as a result of our campaign
