The Kentown Children’s Palliative Care Programme

The Kentown Children’s Palliative Care Programme is a community-focused initiative in North West England covering Lancashire and South Cumbria.

The collaborative project combines nursing care, social care and information and signposting to provide families in the area with nursing, practical, and emotional support as well as helping them find and access other services that can help them.

Funded by The Kentown Wizard Foundation, the programme comprises Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity Family Support Workers, Together for Short Lives Family Service Coordinators and Specialist Children’s Palliative Care Nurses from five NHS Trusts across the region.
