Association for Children with Life-Threatening Conditions

ACT is the only national organisation working to improve care and services for all children in the UK with life-threatening or terminal conditions and their families. Our work is needed because there are over 14,000 affected children in the UK and many families are struggling with little or no support.
Registered in 1993, ACT has found that all families have similar needs although their children have a wide range of life-threatening conditions. We believe that they should all have equal access to palliative care, wherever they live and whatever their illness.
