About us


Whatever you thought a children’s hospice might be like, that’s not us. Prepare to be amazed.

We’re a pioneering children’s hospice. We never stop looking for new and better ways to support local children and families. Magic happens here, which is one of the reasons we’ve chosen a real princess to be our patron!

Matilda's story

Born a twin and 6 weeks early, Matilda has spina bifida, fused kidneys and brain abnormalities, and she spent her first 3 months in hospital. As she’s grown, Matilda has faced many more hurdles, but her astonishing resilience and character shine through. We’re proud to support her whole family.

Poppy's story

The last thing you want at your 20-week-scan is the devastating news that your baby has a serious condition. Poppy’s parents found out she had Edwards Syndrome – and although she didn’t survive her birth, we supported the whole family leading up to the birth and helped them cope with her death.

Bethanie's story

Bethanie started getting tremors in her arms when she was 7, and eventually the specialists decided she may have a rare condition called leukodystrophy. Despite this, and with our support, Bethanie has blossomed into a typical teenage girl who loves music and going shopping.

Jacob's story

Little Jacob has Down syndrome, but not long after he was born he stopped breathing and had a series of apnoea attacks. He spent months in hospital, and now needs a lot of care. We look after Jacob once a fortnight at home, and we provide respite care so his family can have a break.

We must raise £3.8m every year to cover our costs – but we can still only support 15% of the children in our area who need us. Find out more about us and you might decide you want to help us start reaching the rest!
