About Acorns


Established in 1988, Acorns Children’s Hospice Trust is a registered charity offering a network of care for life limited and life threatened babies, children and young people and their families, across the heart of England.

The children and young people that we help are not expected to reach adulthood and require specialist care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In the last year Acorns has supported 876 children and 1,097 families, including those who are bereaved.

Our care

At Acorns we provide a network of specialist palliative nursing care and support for babies, children and young people aged 0-18 who have life limiting or life threatening conditions and associated complex needs.

Acorns relies on the community to fund the majority of its activities.
