Throughout the duration of 22nd May to 28th May, it’s Children’s Hospice Week. This awareness week aims to spread the word about children who have life-shortening conditions, and the support that is out there for them, their carers, and families.
This year’s campaign aspires to focus on the high volume of families out there with their reality of living and caring for children who suffer from all kinds of illnesses. We want peoples’ voices to be heard so that people can have a clearer understanding of the challenges that parents, carers, and families face on a daily basis.
All of our departments at Disabled Living care about the well-being of children and everything that surrounds them including the support provided for those who look after them.
Do you have a story to share about your own child or one that you have cared for with an illness? You can share your experience with Together for Short Lives.
There are many ways in which you can show your support.
- Join the Twibbon campaign
- Use the free resources available from Together for Short Lives
- Use #UpTheVolume and #ChildrensHospiceWeek on social media
- Join in with Turn up the Volume Music Quiz
- Organise a fundraising event
