Breaking News: The ICPCN launches a new website

“The work that Julia and the wider network of the ICPCN undertake is truly inspiring. We are delighted, and frankly feel honoured, to be able to help them in a small way to support the families and children living with life limiting conditions”

(Charlie Langhorne MD of Wild in Art)

“We are delighted to be launching our new website and brand today, and are enormously grateful to Wild in Art, Cornerstone and Rob Bannon for their support in enabling us to reach this exciting stage. Though our vital services continue unabated to facilitate more and better provision of palliative care to the world’s estimated 21m children and young people who urgently need that support, we believe our new refreshed brand image and an easier to navigate website, will ensure that we can bring our work to the attention of many more worldwide – whether children and families, professionals or potential donors.”

(Mike Palfreman, Chair of the ICPCN Board)

“We are so excited to be launching our new branding and website – I am so grateful to all those who have been part of this process and thank the ICPCN staff for their ongoing support and the hours that they have put into this work.”

(Prof Julia Downing, Chief Executive ICPCN)

After many months of hard work, the International Children’s Palliative Care Network (ICPCN) is proud to announce that we have launched our new and improved website. If you are reading this then you have seen our bright, new and exciting website at The new website is faster, more user-friendly, and easier to navigate. Our amazing, hardworking, and efficient staff have spent several months building the website together with the website developers – Cornerstone Design & Marketing.

The ICPCN is a worldwide network of individuals and organisations working with children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. We actively work to improve the lives of the estimated 21 million children with life-limiting conditions worldwide through Communication, Advocacy, Research, Education and Strategic development (ICPCN CARES).

What’s new on the website?

ICPCN aims to provide a global voice for children’s palliative care and to advocate for the rights of children to receive the palliative care they require. It is important for us to make information regarding children’s palliative care easily accessible to everyone across different platforms, especially the website. We hope that will find our new website useful and simple to navigate, while at the same time being able to access information on ICPCN’s impact, important research, news items, stories, events and a wide range of resources.

Amongst the new features the menu is easier to access and navigate and the website is well-organised and visually appealing and it is still possible to translate the website into different languages making it easier to be understood by people from all over the world. We will be constantly updating our content with helpful information, articles, stories, newsletters, announcements, events and the news.

We hope you find the new website easy to access and enjoyable to use and would be pleased to receive any comments you may have. As always we will be continually updating and revising the website – so please do send us your news, stories and events so that we can add them and ensure that the website is kept up to date and useful. We are also aware that some of the organisational details in our members directory might be out of date so please do check this carefully on the new website and let us know of any changes that are needed.


Wild in ArtOur new website would not have been possible without the support and generosity of Wild in Art who funded this. They have made this huge step possible and afforded ICPCN the opportunity to rebrand and develop the new website and logo. We would also like to thank Rob Brannon from Rob Designs who worked with us on the branding along with Theresa Wilds, and the team at Cornerstone Design & Marketing for all their hard work, patience and support in developing the website.
