CHAS is Children’s Hospice Association Scotland – Scotland’s only hospice services for babies, children and young people living with a life-shortening condition. Here in Aberdeen, our dedicated, specialist team provide individualised care to children who need it, as well as supporting the entire family. Right now in Scotland, 3 children die from a life-shortening condition each week, and CHAS are only reaching 1 of those 3. With help from events like this, our goal of reaching every family gets closer.
