Children's Hospices Across Scotland – better known as CHAS – is the national children's hospice service for Scotland.
For over 25 years, CHAS has been providing support for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions by offering palliative care, family respite and support – not just to the child, but the whole family.
Every week in Scotland three children die of an incurable condition. Currently, CHAS can only reach one of them but are determined to reach every family in Scotland that needs them.
We provide care through our two wonderful hospices – Rachel House in Kinross and Robin House in Balloch – and also through the CHAS at Home service which has teams working from both hospices as well as dedicated teams in Aberdeen and Inverness, caring for families in their own homes when they need it most. CHAS also provides Diana Children's Nurses in children's hospitals across Scotland.
