About us

A parent never imagines their child will be diagnosed with a life limiting or life threatening condition. But when the unimaginable happens, Acorns 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 life limited and life threatened babies, children and young people, and support for their families.
This support is offered from Acorns three hospices, based in Worcester, Birmingham and Walsall, and in the community. Acorns hospices provide a home-from-home environment where children take part in a range of fun and therapeutic activities, from arts and crafts sessions to hydrotherapy. Children visit Acorns for respite, short breaks, end of life and emergency care.

Our health and social care professionals provide a range of services, including bereavement support and advocacy, as well as a number of dedicated support groups, helping to reduce the isolation some families can face. 

Acorns is proud to have cared for over 820 children in the past year, and supported more than 1,070 families, including those who have been bereaved[i].

We need £27,000 per day to provide our vital services and we rely on generous donations and fundraising by the community and local businesses for 60% of this amount.
