The Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF) is proud to introduce “Jockey Club Children’s Palliative Care Project”. This is a three-year project generously supported by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust (JCCT), is a significant stride by CCF towards providing holistic support to children and their families facing life-threatening conditions.   

The project allows us to extend our unique children’s palliative care to PICU and NICU patients and their families. This community care model encompasses clinical, social, psychological, spiritual, and practical support domains, which keen on establishing a sustainable and evidence-based practice.

Our professional and multidisciplinary teams are poised to deliver a high-quality “child-centered and family-oriented” care to up to 960 high-impact beneficiaries, including children, teenagers, and their families. We are also committed to train over 1700 health service providers and carers and equip them with the relevant skills and knowledge on their caring journey.    

Through this project, we strive to bring hope to our targeted patients and families, letting them feel the care and support from the wider community and facilitate them to live life to the fullest.
