Hospice update - Covid-19

The latest Covid lockdown has come as a huge blow to all of us. But not a huge shock. At Forget Me Not, we’ve been preparing for this possibility for some time. The lessons we learnt during 2020 have helped us adapt our care and family support services so that they are lockdown-proof, Covid-safe and mean families get the support they need at home or at the hospice. We have a good stock of PPE, excellent infection control measures in place, our care staff are regularly tested for Covid, as are all visitors to the hospice and vaccinations for our team are underway.

Of course, with all our shops having to close once more and normal fundraising activity still on hold, we continue to face a huge shortfall in the income we need. Again we are doing everything we can to minimise this loss, including furloughing some of our non-care staff. But, again, it means we’re relying on your help to see us through. However you can support us, it will make a difference.

While our shops are closed, you can still buy online at our eBay store and online shop. And please keep hold of your unwanted clothes, toys, homeware and bric-a-brac – we’ll need them more than ever once our doors are open again.

Look out for our calendar of virtual events and challenges to keep you entertained, active and fundraising, whether you’re a runner, walker, gamer, dancer or cyclist!

And please join us in celebrating the 10th anniversary of our hospice, Russell House, being built – we’ve got lots of exciting things planned and lots of ways you can get involved – you can find out more here.

Thank you for all your support. We wish you all the best over the next few weeks. Please stay safe.

Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice supports children with life-shortening conditions – plus their families.

We help hundreds of wonderful children, and their equally wonderful families, through our Hospice at Home service and at our fantastic purpose-built building - Russell House in Huddersfield. Our services have been rated as 'outstanding' by the CQC.

Right across West Yorkshire we provide superb nursing care, days out, listening, respite care, therapy… and we’ll even tackle your ironing!

We do things differently. If you thought you knew what a hospice was, think again. Prepare to be amazed…

We are one enormous family – made up of the people we care for, our own team, and hundreds of volunteers, donors, fundraisers and business supporters.

you can make a difference!

With our current resources, we can only reach 15% of the children who need us. The government only provides around 3.3% of our income, so we need the support of the whole community. And with your help, we could start reaching the other 85%!
