Who We Help

There are over 400 different conditions that can be deemed as life-limiting, that is a condition having no cure and potentially shortening the child’s life.

In the North-east of Scotland we know there are at least 1,500 babies, children and young people living with one of these conditions, there are also many undiagnosed and unique conditions and syndromes that also cause severe disability, multiple complex needs and can potentially shorten a child’s life.  

We currently support a number of families across the North-east but we know there are many more locally that need help. We would like to reach out to as many of these children and their families as possible and provide them with the support they require, growing our services to support them when they need it most.
