Services for children and young people
Specialist hospice and palliative care services offer full medical and nursing care (and often respite care) for children and young people with a life-limiting illness. For further information about the work of children’s hospices and other resources for children and families, you may like to contact Together for Short Lives.
Cultures and religions
Many hospices were started by religious organisations. However, hospices value the different cultures, faiths and life experiences of every individual and do their best to meet their needs.
There are hospice and palliative care services throughout the world. Our international team can help to put you in touch with these services, or you can search for them using our international directory.
