About our hospices
We have two purpose built children’s hospices, Christopher’s based in Guildford and Shooting Star House in Hampton. Our hospices are homes from home for the families we support, offering children’s bedrooms and family flats for respite care as well as a host of specialist equipment to help make every moment count for children with life-limiting conditions, and their families.
Take a look inside to see for yourself how warm, welcoming, bright and homely our hospices are.
“We were doing everything on our own and as she was getting older it got harder. We always knew her condition was life-limiting but when people said about a children’s hospice I had a very different picture of what it would be. I always had a preconception, thinking, ‘Well she’s not going to die now’, but soon came to realise that’s not what a children’s hospice is.” Emma, Hollie’s mum.Read Hollie's story
