Together for Short Lives is here for the 99,000 families up and down the UK, caring for a seriously ill child and the children’s hospices that provide them with vital care.
The pain of hearing that your child will die young is unimaginable for most of us, but for the families we support, it is the heart-breaking reality that they face.
Sadly, too many families are suffering through their child’s short life, and they’re suffering alone.
When a family hears the news that their child will die young their whole world is turned upside down. They suddenly have to navigate a maze of medical and social services and many parents will need to give up their job to care for their child full-time. It’s overwhelmingly scary and can leave a family feeling isolated, alone and stressed – all they want to do is to spend time with the child they love so dearly.
Together for Short Lives can't save a child's life, but with your support we can make a lasting difference - helping families make the most of every moment they have together. We’re here to provide vital support and help families feel less alone – so they can make the most of every moment they have together, whether that’s years, months or just hours.
