Who we are
CHaL started as an informal group of London children’s hospice chief executives meeting on a regular basis to share knowledge, discuss issues and look for collective solutions and areas for joint working.
It quickly became clear that working together more formally would give us the opportunity to make our resources go further. This would mean that we could achieve more and help more children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. CHaL was established as a charity in 2012, and we’ve subsequently grown to cover all children’s hospice care in London and some of the surrounding areas.
CHaL has a diverse board with extensive experience across the charity sector. The board meets regularly to discuss mutually important issues, compare ways of working and ensure that our shared resources are deployed efficiently for the benefit of the children and families that we support.
