Impact reports

Mum with son and daughter

When a child’s life is expected to be short, there’s no time to waste.

Together for Short Lives is the UK charity that is here to make sure the 49,000 seriously ill children and their families can make the most of every moment they have together, whether that’s for years, months or only hours. Many of these children have complex conditions and need specialist care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The impact is enormous; affected parents, brothers and sisters, grandparents, and the wider family make up an estimated 399,000 people who are actively involved in care. For those who love these children, accessing help and the right care can be emotionally stressful.

Getting the right support can make a lifetime of difference. And that’s what we are here for.
