A Family Companion

The Together for Short Lives Family Companion is for parents/carers and family members of children and young people who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition. At a time when things can seem overwhelming, this Companion acts as a step by step guide through the complex and often confusing processes that take place following diagnosis.

It helps parents think important things through, and provides information about what can be expected – explaining what should happen, why it should happen as well as making it clear what support should be made available, and where that support can be found.
