About Acorns

A parent never imagines their child will be diagnosed with a life limiting or life threatening condition. But when the unimaginable happens, Acorns Children’s Hospice steps in, helping families cope at every stage of their child’s life and beyond, wherever and whenever they need it.

Our dedicated teams provide specialist palliative care for babies, children and young people, and support for their families. This support is offered from our three hospices, based in Worcester, Birmingham and Walsall, and in the community.

Stronger Together – an Acorns film

“You’ll never forget that moment… The diagnosis…”

Our new film ‘Stronger Together’ takes you on the moving journey of the children and families who inspire everything we do here at Acorns.

With your help, we can make sure these remarkable families never face this journey alone.
