Shooting Star Children's Hospices
We are 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 £10 million a year to maintain our current level of care and just 10% of that income comes from government funding, so we rely on our supporters’ generosity to keep the service running.
How we help

Our specially trained nurses and care staff support life-limited children with complex medical needs at our two hospices and in their own homes.Read more

It costs £10 million a year to keep our hospices open and we have to raise £9 million of this through donations, meaning we rely on our supporters’ generosity to keep the service running.Donate
