Children’s Hospice Week

Children’s Hospice Week celebrates children’s hospice and palliative care services across the UK, and the seriously ill children and young people they support. This year it’s taking place between 17 – 23 June 2024.

Throughout #ChildrensHospiceWeek we’ll share powerful stories of inspirational families, showing just how important children’s hospices are for the 99,000 seriously ill children across the country. Watch this space for more information but in the meantime here are just a couple of the many ways you can get involved:

  • Take on the 99,000 Steps Challenge: One week. 99,000 steps. A step for every child living in the UK with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition. Sign up for free to take part in this amazing challenge this Children’s Hospice Week! Get involved as a team or individual and step your way to the top of the leaderboards. And finally, share your page, fundraise, and tell everyone why you’re pushing yourself to your limits.
  • Sharing powerful family stories and exciting news from the week: We are proud to be able to tell the stories of some truly incredible families, whose local children’s hospice is their lifeline. We’d love you to help us share these far and wide through all your channels.
