Description

The United Kingdom counts at least 49,000 babies, children, and young people with life-limiting conditions. Taking care of a chronically ill child is one of the most draining and difficult tasks a parent can face. Beyond handling physical challenges and medical needs, families have to deal with a child's emotional needs and the impact that a prolonged illness can have on the entire family. In between visiting hospitals and receiving the needed health care, family members feel worried about their sister, bother, or child every day. These difficult times can be made a bit easier by providing these families with support and a lifeline.

Importance Importance

Many families with a sick child are able to cope or are not in a ‘crisis situation’. However, thousands of families have to face the very real possibility that their child may die and struggle to cope on a day to day basis. By supporting the whole family including parents, carers, the unwell child, brothers, sisters, and grandparents these difficult times can be made bearable.
