Shooting Star Children's Hospices
We’re a leading children’s hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families. We support families across Surrey and London from diagnosis to end of life and throughout bereavement with a range of nursing, practical, emotional and medical care.
It costs £8.8 million a year to maintain our current level of care and just 11% of that income comes from central government funding, so we rely on our supporters’ generosity to keep the service running.
