Knowing that your child may die before you do, is the unthinkable reality that thousands of families across Scotland have to cope with every day.
Right now, we only have enough money to help one in three families. You can help us to reach them all.
The CHAS Alphabet is at the heart of everything we do. It’s bright, colourful and filled with fun and represents the joy we aspire to bring to the lives of the children and families we care for.
Best of all, the CHAS Alphabet is created by the very best designers – the children we care for.
