For young people living with a life limiting illness

Paediatric palliative care enables the baby, child or young adult to live in an environment where curative treatment can be part of their life, but not their entire focus. It aims to provide the best quality of life through a holistic approach which supports the physical, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of the child and their family.

Palliative Care Australia has a range of resources for younger people, their families and health professionals here.
