Our Strategic Plan

Our ambition is that no-one should face the death of their child alone. Three children a week die in Scotland from an incurable condition. Our strategic plan is inspired by them. Their time is precious, so our strategic plan sets out how we will provide unwavering care to children who may die young and their families, at every step on this hardest of journeys. 

Unwavering Care: Our Strategic Plan 2024-2028

Families say there are three critical stages on their journey when they need CHAS:

Learning your child is seriously ill and may die young

We will be there earlier for families at this heartbreaking time, providing support sooner after diagnosis. We will help emotionally, clinically, and practically.

Living well

We will help the whole family – including parents and siblings – to live well with complexity, worry, and uncertainty. We will help children to be included and have fun, creating precious memories that will last a lifetime.

Dying well and bereavement

Just as every child is unique, so is every death. We will help families to experience a meaningful goodbye based on their choices and support them in their immediate grief and beyond.
