A Little Bit About CHAS

Dress Up Friday for CHAS
CHAS provides vital support to children with life-limiting conditions and their families

CHAS has been offering a full family support service for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions for 20 years. This includes palliative care, family respite and support – through its two hospices, homecare services and hospital presence.

CHAS needs to raise £5,650 to fund a day’s care in Rachel or Robin House. £12,750 will fund a day’s care across all of CHAS services including its hospices, in family's homes and in hospitals across Scotland. CHAS is doing everything it can to be there for every child in Scotland with a life-shortening condition.

During this time when we can't support CHAS through visitors' donations in our beautiful restaurant, The Kitchen, The Store and The Wellbeing Lab, we are excited to try to raise vital funds through your kindness. We can't wait to see how much you can help us raise for CHAS. Get entering.
