CHAS Strategic Plan

With the help of the Scottish Government, we commissioned a ground-breaking piece of research that established, for the first time, the full scale of the number of children in Scotland with life-shortening conditions. It is from this work that we know three children die each week but the more compelling statistic for us was that we are reaching only one of these families. We need to do much more to reach out to every family that needs our help and this theme of reaching every family is at the very core of our new three year strategic plan.
