Together for Short Lives
Supporting children unlikely to reach adulthood
Together for Short Lives is the leading UK charity for all children with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions and all those who support, love and care for them. They support families, professionals and services, including children’s hospices, and their work helps to ensure that children can get the best possible care, wherever and whenever they need it. They work closely with the hospices and care professionals, raise funds for children’s hospices and a range of other voluntary organisations, offer resources and training to help maintain consistent, high quality care and continue supporting families after a child’s death.
In addition, Together for Short Lives campaigns for equal coverage of specialised services for children with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions and families across the UK, and for better co-ordination of health, social care and education. Your donations have made a huge difference to date, helping children like Finley and his brother Evan, providing short breaks for children like Willow and her family and giving a new lease of life to families like Rafferty’s.
