Children’s Hospice Week is the only week in the year dedicated to raising awareness and funds for children’s hospice and palliative care services across the UK, and all the seriously ill children and young people they support.
Families with seriously ill children are pushed to their limits. Caring for a child with serious health needs can be exhausting – and often the challenges families face are little understood.
At the same time, children’s hospices are being pushed to their limits too – with more and more children in need of their care. Please visit Together for Short Lives to find out how to raise money or donate
Kate Middleton has praised the work of children’s hospices in a moving open letter as she said the past year has been ‘tough and frightening’ for families with seriously ill youngsters.
Advocacy Matters no longer work with the Birmingham Children’s Hospital but we still wholeheartedly support the work they do. We hope to be working with children again in the near future.
