Children's Palliative Care

Childrens palliative care is life-long supportive care for children with  life limiting or life threatening conditions. It is all-encompassing care provided to children and their families over time.  Alongside medical care, children can experience therapeutic treatments, home visits and different types of support involving a wide range of people working in partnership to help make sure that unwell children get the things all children need: friendship, fun, activities, and downtime.
