ACT is the only organisation working across the UK to achieve a better quality of life and care for every life-limited or life-threatened child or young person and their family.

ACT has three key strands to its work:

Campaigning for the development of integrated, equitable and sustainable children's palliative care services.

Working with professionals to develop best practice and develop and disseminate the evidence base of what works best.

Empowering and supporting families, including young people, to have a voice in the development of children's palliative care services and providing them with the information they need to access the best care and support.
