Here to support families caring for a life-limited or life-threatened child find the support they need
Each family is unique and everyone's experience will be different. These pages give you information and advice that can be helpful at different times following your child's diagnosis.
Are you a parent or carer who looks after a child or young person who has a life-limiting or life-threatening condition? If you have questions, need support or just want someone to talk to, please contact our Together for Families Helpline free on 0808 8088 100. Alternatively click on the Live chat button in the bottom right of the screen.
You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your helpline questions and someone will respond as soon as possible. Our Helpline is also there to support professionals who care for children, young people and families.
Find easily digestible information about the support you need, find local or national support services, and connect with other families who understand what you are going through.
