Together for Short Lives
Hearing the news that your child has a life-limiting or life-threatening condition and is likely to die young is completely devastating.
For tens of thousands of families in the UK this is the reality. These children have very complex and unpredictable conditions and often need round the clock care, seven days a week.
Together for Short Lives is a UK wide charity that, together with our members, speaks out for all children and young people who are expected to have short lives. They are there to help children and their families to access specialist children’s palliative care services when and where they need it.
Please take a look at their profile to see how they can help you or how you can help them. The work they do makes a difference to people’s lives when it is needed most.
