Do you have what it takes?

We never forget how hard it can be for our families. We’re always looking for ways to take a little bit of weight from their shoulders so they can enjoy life together, have fun and make magical memories that will last a lifetime.

To help us, we need people who will bring their best – because only the best will do for our families. And people who understand that it’s only by working together that we’ll fulfil our promise that, while we’re here, no family in West Yorkshire will have to face the loss of their child alone.  

Looking after each other

We know our work isn’t easy. And that we need to be at our best to give our best. So we look after each other too. Our wide-ranging wellbeing support includes resilience workshops, occupational health services and free 24/7 access to counselling, information and advice on a range of topics from family matters, relationships, debt management and workplace issues. 

Forget Me Not gives you the freedom to develop yourself professionally

I love the positive atmosphere of the hospice, it feels like a family

Making a difference in one person’s life is a remarkable accomplishment and yet we do it to many, every single day

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Pledge

We believe in the development and embedding of an inclusive culture that respects people’s differences and gives everyone the best chance to excel at making a difference for the families we support.
