You can make a difference for local children and families

It’s only thanks to the support of people like you that we are able to keep providing local children’s hospice care for the children and families who rely on us. The number of children living with life limiting and life threatening conditions in our region is increasing, we need your help to ensure we can reach every child, baby and young person who needs our care.

How we’re funded

It costs around £10 million a year to run our care services in our three hospices and out in the community, providing care for children and support for their families.
