Conference 2020

Time for Change logo

Following our decision to postpone our March 2020 conference Time for Change: A new vision for children’s palliative care due to the public health challenge caused by COVID-19, and with the continued uncertainty around the impact of Coronavirus, we will not now be holding a rescheduled event in Autumn 2020.

In the light of this decision, we are refunding all conference delegate and exhibitor booking fees. If you had a place booked, you don’t need to do anything – we will refund your booking fee automatically over the course of July/August 2020.

Thank you for your support and bearing with us. We look forward to meeting in person again when it’s safe to do so.

If you were booked as a delegate, speaker or exhibitor at the conference we hope the following FAQs will help with initial queries. If you have further questions, or would like to speak someone at Together for Short Lives please use the contact form below, and we will endeavor to respond to your query as soon as we can.

Frequently Asked Questions

I would like to cancel my booking and get a refund

Over the course of July/August 2020 we will process full refunds for all places booked for delegates, speakers and exhibitors. Please bear with us as this may take some time, but if you haven’t received your refund by September, do get in touch at

What about the travel and accommodation I have booked?

As we are a charity we are unable to reimburse any travel or accommodation costs incurred by delegates.

I was looking forward to the event - will you still be delivering part or parts of the programme?

Although we are not planning a UK-wide venue-based conference in the short term, we are putting together a series of virtual events to share some of the sessions that were due to be held at our conference.  The Time for Change webinar series will run throughout Autumn 2020 and will be free to attend. Find out more about the series and register your interest here.
