Family Experts

If you are a parent, Carer or family member of a child with a life limiting condition we need your help. Join our mailing list and become a Family Expert and we will email you opportunities to shape our projects, take part in research,  and a chance to get your voice heard by taking part in consultations.

We call those who generously give their time to help us and the palliative care sector ‘Family Experts’, this title truly reflecting the knowledge and lived experience that we appreciate so much.

There’s no minimum time commitment and no obligation to take part in every task; making this opportunity easy to fit in with the demands of everyday life. Our family community is for any family member involved in a child’s care. Young adults with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions can join too.

Sign up below to become a Family Experts, or continue reading for more about our family community.

The voices of children, young people and families are at the heart of everything we do. Your personal experience is the most powerful tool to help us raise awareness and make change happen. By listening to parents, and amplifying your voices we are a much stronger movement.
