Children’s Hospice Week 2018

Life’s short, for all of us.

We all want to do what we love and make the most of every minute. For children with life-limiting conditions and their families, “Life’s Short” has a poignant meaning: they simply do not have time to waste.

Children’s Hospices across the UK help these children enjoy the simple moments in life that we all cherish. Join us this Children’s Hospice Week 21-27 May to create more moments that matter and raise awareness and funds for the 49,000 children across the UK living with life-limiting conditions, and the lifeline services that support them.

Get involved

Show your support by sharing the moments that you love best in life on social media using the hashtag #LifesShort
