Children’s Hospices Across Scotland is the new name for Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS). Our vision is that every baby, child and young person in Scotland will have access to palliative care when and where they need it. This sits at the heart of everything we do.

Caring for a child with a life-shortening condition can place unimaginable demands on families, physically and emotionally. Quite simply, we are here to lighten their load.

Our role as a charity is threefold.

  • We provide CARE through our two wonderful hospices – Rachel House in Kinross and Robin House in Balloch – and also through CHAS at Home which has teams working from Rachel House and Robin House as well as dedicated teams in Aberdeen and Inverness, caring for families in their own homes when they need it most.
  • We generate SUPPORT for our work through tireless, year-round fund-raising to secure over £9million, needed every year to run our hospices and provide services to families.
  • We make CONNECTIONS between families, health and social care professionals, the media, supporters and influencers to raise awareness of our work and promote joined up service provision for families.
