Every month we feature a different charity to help raise funds for incredibly worthwhile causes. This is done by enabling customers to donate an amount, of their specification, through our charity car donation scheme. For the month of March we’re supporting ‘Together For Short Lives’; a charity which supports children and their families to have as fulfilling lives as possible and the very best care at the end of life.
About ‘Together For Short Lives’
49,000 children and young people are living in the UK with health conditions that are life-limiting or life-threatening – and the number is rising.
Together for Short Lives is the leading UK charity that speaks out for all children and young people who are expected to have short lives. Together with everyone who provides care and support to these children and families, Together for Short Lives is here to help them have as fulfilling lives as possible and the very best end of life care. They can’t change the diagnosis, but they can help children and families make the most of their time together.
Together for Short Lives is there for families throughout their journey, answering the questions that matter most and helping them make informed choices about their child’s care. They help families access specialist children’s palliative care services and they support all the professionals, children’s palliative care services and children’s hospices that deliver lifeline care to children and families across the UK.
Together For Short Lives Vision
For children and young people with life-shortening conditions to have as fulfilling lives as possible, and the best care at the end of life.
Together For Short Lives Strategy For Change
We cannot achieve change for babies, children, young people, families and those that support them in isolation. By working in partnership across the children’s palliative care sector with our members, patrons, stakeholders and supporters, together with the voices of children, young people and families at the heart of all we do, we can achieve so much more as a strong and powerful movement. Our national voice, data and evidence, resources, tools, networks and collective fundraising muscle can help us work together to provide a unified voice and drive for developing the best children’s palliative care.
Together for Short Lives will achieve change by helping to:
1. Build a strong and sustainable children’s palliative care sector for the 49,000+.
2. Ensure children, young people and families are supported and empowered.
3. Join-up policy, services, care and support for children and families.
4. Create greater understanding and support for children’s palliative care.
