Closure of Grace’s Place

It is with deep regret that we have to announce that, following a consultation with staff, our children’s hospice service at Grace’s Place in Bury will now close.

Despite extensive media coverage, support from local politicians and council members and generous offers of support from the community, we have not been able to secure enough additional funding to keep our doors open and continue to deliver services to local families from Grace’s Place in Bury.


Changing local children’s lives

More than 650 children in the Bury, Oldham and Rochdale area are living with life-shortening conditions - but the vast majority haven't had any support from a children’s hospice. Until now. We're already caring for local families in their own homes and in our hospice 3 days a week. Wre working hard to make Grace's Place the welcoming home-from-home that they and many more families need and deserve.

A children’s hospice for North Manchester

Our existing children’s hospice at Russell House, Huddersfield, is rated as ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission.

Now we’re opening Grace’s Place in Bury, we will be able to provide children's hospice care to North Manchester. The building is ready and waiting thanks to the hard work of amazing local supporters and Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust and we are already caring for local families in their own homes.
