Where will I be volunteering?

We are the UK charity for children’s palliative care. We are here to support and empower families caring for seriously ill children, and to build a strong and sustainable children’s palliative care sector – so that no family is left behind.

We directly support children and families through our helpline and the information and resources on our website, which help ensure that families can find the right local services and make the right choices about their child’s care. We support all the professionals, children’s palliative care services and children’s hospices that deliver lifeline care. We have over 1,000 members, including children hospices, voluntary sector organisations and statutory service providers. By working together, we provide a strong and unified voice for the sector, and help services deliver the best quality care and support tailored to each family’s needs.

We work with the public, politicians and companies to raise awareness, advocate for change, and increase funding for children’s palliative care services. Our Families Team supports families with children affected by life threatening or life limiting conditions. We also provide support and information to professionals across the children’s palliative care sector. The volunteer will support the work of the support line and family projects.
