When a child’s life is expected to be short, there’s no time to waste. Together for Short Lives is the UK charity here to make sure the 99,000 seriously ill children and their families can make the most of every moment they have together – whether that’s for years, months or only hours. Many of these children have complex conditions and need specialist care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We stand alongside families, supporting them to make sure they get the vital care and help that they need.

Our Helpline is here for families facing the toughest of times. We offer confidential emotional support and information to families, connecting them with support services and other families who understand what they are going through, so they don’t feel as alone, and can spend less time searching for help and have more time together.

We champion, improve and support children’s palliative care services and professionals. With over 1,000 members, we present a strong and unified voice to lobby on behalf of the sector, and ensure services can deliver the best quality care and support tailored to each family’s needs. We work tirelessly to raise awareness and understanding about childhood death and campaign for policy change, so every child and family can get the right care and support.

And we raise vital funds through our award-winning national corporate partnerships to ensure that children’s hospice care not only continues but continues to improve. With the support of our dedicated corporate partners, we have raised over £25 million since 2003 to support children’s hospices across the UK.

Please note this role is based three days per week in Morrisons’ Bradford office. The remaining time will be home-based. Travel to Together for Short Lives’ Bristol office, as well as to children’s hospices and Morrisons’ sites across the country, will be a regular and necessary part of this role.

We are always looking for talented people and welcome people regardless of age, disability, gender identity, marital status, race, faith or belief and sexual orientation. However, we particularly encourage applications from those with disabilities or from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, as these groups are underrepresented throughout the charity sector.
