We’re delighted to announce that our chosen Charity Partner for 2023 is Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS).
For over 20 years, CHAS has been offering support services for families of babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions.
At the SPPA, our work supports over half a million of Scotland’s key workers and their families. We are here for our members and the people who depend on them.
Today, more than 16,700 babies, children and young people live with a life-shortening medical condition. Thanks to advances in medicine and care, more children than ever live longer and enjoy a better quality of life. Sadly, though, three children die every week as a result of their condition.
Through their hospices, home care services and hospital presence, CHAS provides palliative care, family respite and support throughout Scotland including dedicated bases in Aberdeen and Inverness.
If you’d like to help us support this great cause - You can support CHAS by donating here at our JustGiving page. Donating is quick, easy, and secure, and your money goes directly to the charity. We have a whole range of activities and events in store to help raise funds, which we will share as the year progresses.
