More About The Organisation

Organisation Description

About the Organisation

There are an estimated 49,000 children and young people in the UK living with a life-threatening or life-limiting condition that may require palliative care services. We are there for every single one of these children, and their families, so they know where to go for help and are aware of the support available to them. With the right kind of information, it can become easier to access care and support, as well as practical and emotional help for the whole family when it’s needed most. We help families get this information so they know what to expect at different stages throughout their journey.
