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 8% of that income comes from central government funding, so we rely on our supporters’ generosity to keep the service running.

How we help

Supporting life-limited children

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

Supporting the whole family

We care for the whole family, offering short breaks, therapies, days out, bereavement support and more to parents, siblings and grandparents.
