It's Christmas!

As we entered 2020, no one expected it to be anything other than a normal year, but the global pandemic of the last 8 months has made life anything but normal. Approaching Christmas, we know it won't be the same for any of us. We face a Christmas spent apart from our loved ones, which for most of us will be temporary but for a CHAS family this could be their last.

CHAS families face the terrifying reality of losing a child and this year has been particularly hard. COVID_19 has limited the amount of experiences we can provide for families. CHAS families who cannot put time on hold or postpone events. That's why this Christmas is so important.

We continue to support families through the terrifying heartbreak of knowing their child may die young. With love and compassion, we offer highly personalised care in hospice, hospital and home. We make things possible so children have the freedom to be themselves, play outside, laugh, sparkle, smile, and have treasured moments of joy. We are there when needed most - in really tough days, at end of life, and after a child die. By supporting us this Christmas you will help make sure that no-one should face the death of their child alone.
