Children’s Hospice Week 2020

Children’s Hospice Week is the only week in the year dedicated to raising awareness and funds for children’s hospice and palliative care services across the UK, and the seriously ill children and young people they support. These services are a lifeline for families when they’re facing the toughest of times, and they can’t continue their vital work without your support.

Children’s Hospice Week 2020 – Save the date

We’ve set the date for Children’s Hospice Week 2020.

So save the date in your diary – it’s 22 to 28 June 2020.

We’re starting to work on the theme for our 2020 campaign and will share the logo and our thinking later this autumn.

What are children’s hospice services, and why are they important?

There are 49,000 children in the UK living with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, and that number is growing. Many of these children have complex health conditions and need round the clock care. The 54 children’s hospice services across the UK play a vital role in helping these families stay afloat, giving them a break from caring responsibilities, providing specialist clinical care and providing a range of practical and emotional support for all the family.
