Better funding for children's hospices in the UK
- Tony Blair, 10 Downing Street
- United Kingdom
May 17, 2006
There are around 20,000 chldren in the UK suffering from life limiting conditions.
The children's hospices play a vital role in the care of the children and the support of their families.
There are currently twenty-three children's hospices in the UK.
The Government currently offers funding of between 0-3% of the annual running cost which average around £1.7 million pounds.
If you compare this to the £3 billion pounds they have spent on the Iraq war, this shows where the government's priorities are...
We, the undersigned, petition the Government to change their priorities. We demand better funding for children's hospices in the UK. PLEASE HELP!
