who can use our services?

A holistic service meets the needs of both the children and young people and their families, including the bereaved (subject to meeting the Acorns eligibility criteria). This includes short break provision; emergency and end of life care; therapeutic and psychosocial support; sibling services; and family support.

Support is provided in each of our three hospices and the wider community, including a family’s home and a member of the family team is on call 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.
