At Acorns, our lifeline care and support never stops. We’re here for children and their families wherever and whenever they need us, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
It costs £30,000 a day to run our three hospices and provide our vital support. We’re here 365 days a year or, in a leap year like this, year, 366 days. A donation from you today helps us ensure care never takes a day off.
Together, we are stronger.
With your help not only do our hospices provide a home from home environment where children can take part in a variety of fun and therapeutic activities, from arts and crafts to hydrotherapy, but we also support their families.
We help families feel equipped to cope at every stage of their child’s life without our dedicated psychological, emotional and practical support. Our team of health and social care professionals provide a range of services including bereavement support, advocacy and several dedicated support groups.
