Sign the Charter for Children's Palliative Care

Some of Scotland's faith community and political leaders signed the Religions of the World Charter on Palliative Care at a special event at the Scottish Parliament on Wednesday 8th November. Will you add your signature today?

There are more than 20 million children worldwide affected by serious illness with palliative care needs. It is imperative that all these children and their families are guaranteed the right to access appropriate care that encompasses emotional and spiritual support.

The Charter is making an important journey around the world to be endorsed by the world’s religions and raise awareness of the importance of children’s palliative care.


I will do all within my power so that every child with a life limiting or a life-threatening illness has access to paediatric palliative care.

Paediatric Palliative Care is the best approach for all children and young people suffering from a life-threatening and/or life-limiting disease.

Collectively, we have the opportunity and awareness to advocate for child-specific palliative care and for its provision as an integral part of the health care system of every country in order to relieve the suffering of vulnerable children with life-threatening and life-limiting illness.
