Children's Hospices Across Scotland

Most people know us as CHAS.

For over twenty years CHAS has been offering a full family support service for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions.

In this time of unprecedented uncertainty, at CHAS, we’re doing everything we can to be there for every child in Scotland with a life-shortening condition and their families.

Get involved with CHAS

Knowing that your child may die before you do, is the unthinkable reality that thousands of families across Scotland have to cope with every day.

Right now, we only have enough money to help one in three families. You can help us to reach them all.

The CHAS Alphabet

The CHAS Alphabet is at the heart of everything we do. It’s bright, colourful and filled with fun and represents the joy we aspire to bring to the lives of the children and families we care for.

Best of all, the CHAS Alphabet is created by the very best designers – the children we care for.

You can buy your very own CHAS Letters online.

See some of our designers’ stories below:

Abbie

When she was young, it looked like Abbie wouldn’t make it past 5 years old.

But Abbie lived until she was 11, and one of her favourite things to do was visiting CHAS.
