Shooting Star House

Shooting Star House, our purpose built children’s hospice in Hampton, first opened its doors in August 2005.

With ten children’s bedrooms and six family flats as well as a host of specialist facilities, Shooting Star House is a home from home for families of children with life-limiting conditions.

Some of our favourite rooms include:

Sensory room – a place to relax and sooth distressed children, and for those with profound multiple learning difficulties it provides a stimulating environment supporting non-verbal communication.

Hydrotherapy pool – as well as offering physical benefits, like aiding mobility and helping muscle tone and strength, our hydrotherapy pool offers emotional benefits, providing fun and memorable experiences for all the family to enjoy together.

Arts and crafts room – a very popular places for children to explore their creative sides.

Garden – As well as accessible equipment to play on, we have a specially designed sensory garden and a memory garden to take a moment to reflect.

Nut aware

Shooting Star Children’s Hospices is a nut aware organisation. We do not use nuts in our on-site kitchen and we ask that no nuts or nut containing products are brought into the hospice at any time.
