Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge has sent a personal message of support for Children’s Hospice Week 2022, asking everyone to join her in celebrating the extraordinary work the UK’s 54 children’s hospices do for children and young people with life-limiting conditions, helping families make the most of their lives together, no matter how short. The Duchess is Royal Patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
The Duchess’s message shines a light on the extraordinary lifeline support that children’s hospices provide, so that families don’t have to face the future alone.
The theme for Children’s Hospice Week is “For The Children.” Children’s hospices provide vital support for children and young people with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition. Everything they do is For The Children – helping families make the most of their lives together, whether that’s for years, months or only hours.
Children’s Hospice Week (20-26 June) is the only week in the year dedicated to raising funds and awareness for children’s hospice services across the UK, and the thousands of children and families they support.
