About us

Welcome to the Child and Young Person’s Advance Care Plan Collaborative (CYPACP) website.

This website has been set up to share the materials produced by the Child and Young Person’s Advance Care Plan Collaborative working group. The Collaborative is a group of NHS and private sector organisations with the common goal of delivering the best possible care to children and young people with life limiting and life threatening conditions. Member organisations span much of the West of England, including the South Central and Wessex, the West Midlands, the North West, the South West and also Kent. A full list of collaborators may be found here. New members are always welcome!

We are delighted to share with you how and why the CYPACP idea was first set up (Our Story).

All the current policies, guides and documentation can be found on the pages of this site.

Given the vast resources now available from fantastic institutions such as Together For Short Lives, it was felt that in order to keep information up to date several links have been provided in pages such as in education and training.

We also plan to develop a section to provide an information resource and guidance to the children, young people and families we support covering detail about the issues, agencies and people that they engage with as part of their ongoing care.

We hope that you find this site, the information and the documents we have provided easy to use. We would warmly welcome any feedback or comments you may have and would very much welcome any and all contributions of material for the site.
