About Lifelites and children's hospices

 

Lifelites empowers 10,000 children and young people in hospices with life-limiting, life-threatening illnesses and disabling conditions by providing opportunities for them to benefit from the power of assistive technologies to learn, to be creative, to communicate and to take control.

There is a Lifelites project in every baby and children’s hospices across the British Isles. The hospices do not pay a penny towards their Lifelites project and all of Lifelites’ work is funded by donations: the equipment, ongoing technical support and training at each hospice costs around £50,000 over four years.
