Together for Short Lives is a leading UK charity for children with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions. The charity’s vision is to ensure that the 49,000 children and young people with life-shortening conditions in the UK have lives that are as fulfilling as possible. They work with families and the brilliant people and services that support them – in hospital, in children’s hospices and in the community – to ensure that no child is left behind.

Already a c.£3m turnover organisation, Together for Short Lives has real aspiration for growth, both in terms of their size and the impact they make. Under the leadership of the new CEO, the charity has begun to re-focus their work, to have the biggest impact on children and families.

  • Proven track record in building relationships with prospective funders and corporates with a view to securing new partnerships for the charity
  • A well-developed understanding of the dynamics of business and financial management within a large organisation.

You will have an understanding of the great importance of palliative care for children and young people.
