Our strategy

Together for Short Lives is here to make sure the UK’s 99,000 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.

Our ten-year strategy focuses on achieving positive change for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, their families, and those that support and care for them.

We want to ensure that every seriously ill child and their family gets high quality children’s palliative and end of life care, when and where they need it.

While we can’t change the diagnosis we want to make sure that no family has to suffer through their child’s short life alone and can treasure every moment they have together.

Our ten year strategy, Making Every Moment Count, shows how we will make that happen.
