Service summary

Together for Short Lives

When a child’s life is expected to be short, there’s no time to waste.

Together for Short Lives is the UK charity that is here to make sure the 49,000 seriously ill children and their families can make the most of every moment they have together, whether that’s for years, months or only hours. Many of these children have complex conditions and need specialist care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We stand alongside families, supporting them to make sure they get the vital care and help that they need.

Our Helpline is here for families facing the toughest of times. We offer confidential emotional support and information on a range of issues and provide easily digestible information about available support so families can spend less time searching for help and have more time together. And we connect families with support services and other families who understand what they are going through, so they don’t feel as alone.

Getting the right support can make a lifetime of difference. And that’s what we are here for.
