Together for Short Lives - Helping children who need Palliative Care to access education

Did you know that there are 40,000 children and young people in England who have a life-limiting or life-threatening condition? Many of them access education from a range of providers – including mainstream schools, further education and early years settings. If you taught a child who had a life-limiting condition, would you or your colleagues know what to do?
