Let’s turn up the volume for Children’s Hospice Week!

News and comment

Join us, together with families and services across the country, for this year’s Children’s Hospice Week (22-28 May). The campaign will be turning up the volume on children’s palliative care to raise awareness about the needs of seriously ill children and to celebrate all the lifeline services that children and families rely on.

There are 49,000 children in the UK living with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, that’s one in every 270 children – the equivalent of one in every school. Many of these children have complex health conditions and need round the clock care. Children’s Hospice Week is the UK’s only awareness and fundraising week for these remarkable children and families and the amazing children’s hospice and palliative care services that support them.

Help up the volume on children’s palliative care and raise money for services supporting seriously ill children across the UK:

Noisy 9-5: Get your colleagues to turn up the volume for the day

  • Amp up your outfit – from neon colours to crazy hair…glam up, go loud and give!
  • Pay to play – lunchtime quiz to find out who’s top of the pops (downloadable quiz coming soon)

Noisy Night: Grab your friends and go loud together

  • Playlist party – get your pals round to play their top five tracks, dance and donate
  • Karaoke competition – hold the ultimate sing-along and crown the best crooner

There are so many ways to #UpTheVolume, so whatever you decide to do for #ChildrensHospiceWeek… just do it LOUD and share it with us on social.

Children’s palliative care charities offer vital care and support to families and rely on public support to continue to provide their lifeline services.
