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.
The needs and priorities of children and their families using our services are changing during this time of uncertainty.
We want to assure you the steps we are taking to continue, restart and evolve our service offering are in consultation with those in our care.

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 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.
