What we do

Together for Short Lives is the UK’s leading charity for Children’s Palliative Care. We are here to make sure that children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and their families can make the most of every moment they have together, whether that’s for years, months or only hours.

Through our family support team and helpline we provide families of seriously ill children with emotional, financial and practical support and advice. We champion and support palliative care professionals with training and resources. We work to influence policy making and Government to secure more investment in children’s palliative care. And through working with our corporate partners we raise £millions to support local children’s hospices directly.

Our vision is that every family caring for a seriously ill child has access to the high-quality care and support they need, when and where they need it.

But we can’t do this alone. As a charity we rely on the generous help of our supporters to continue our work. With your help we can guide families through the toughest of times and help change lives for the better. Supporting us is simple and vital.  Help us to fight for 99,000 seriously ill children out there who have no time to waste.
