Parents and families

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

Whilst patients and their families have been involved in the production of the care plans and materials within this website, we do recognise that the information provided is currently focused primarily on the needs of clinical professionals utilising the CYPACP to agree and document a plan of care for your or member of your family.

Your input

We do, however, aim to provide more information directed at patients and their families in the future and would welcome a family and/or young person to work with us. If this is something you are interested in, please get in touch via the contact us page.

We understand that advance care planning can raise a large number of complex and emotional issues that need to be discussed, thought about and understood.  In future we will be developing this section of the site to provide you and your family with as much information and resources as possible to help you navigate your way through this process.

If there is anything in particular that you wish to be included please get in touch using the email on the contact us page.

Resources for families and young persons

We aim to revise our documentation for patients and families.  However, in the interim, we include below leaflets that were previously developed and are still appropriate for provision to families should you wish.

You may also find the link below useful, where you can access lots of information targeted at families of children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.
