We are looking forward to #HatsOn4CPC this year on Friday 13th October 2023

This year marks a special anniversary of the Hats On for Children’s Palliative Care Campaign. We will be celebrating ten years and this has been made possible by the continuous support and advocacy efforts made by members, partners, and advocates for paediatric palliative care.

The second Friday in October, which this year falls on Friday 13th October 2023, is a day for raising international awareness of the need for children’s palliative care and the work of Children’s Palliative Care (CPC) services worldwide. Now in its 10th year, the annual campaign is known as Hats On for Children’s Palliative Care with the hashtag #HatsOn4CPC.

#HatsOn4CPC Toolkit

The Hats On 4 CPC 2023 toolkit will be made available on our website utilising our new logo, together with resources you can download, customise and use for your local, regional and international campaigns. We will be providing more information in the coming months. Please save the date and plan for the day.

We recognise that holding events may still be challenging for many of us, but don’t worry, even if you are on your own, put on your hat and take a selfie, put it on social media (#HatsOn4CPC) and send it to us at communications@icpcn.org

Our toolkit will help you plan your events, along with social media and other campaigns. Once the toolkit has been finalised you will be able to download the materials here.

The materials below are from the toolkit for #HatsOn4CPC 2022 and we have left them up as examples of the materials that we will be uploading for 2023.
