How we help

We support children with life-limiting conditions and their families living across Surrey, south-west London and north-west London. Our care is available from diagnosis and includes practical support, therapies, respite, family groups and events, use of our hospice facilities and much more.

Marie, Rosie’s Mum

I was like ‘no, I just can’t’, you hear the word hospice and think ‘I don’t want to do that’… I said to my mum that we’d just go and have a look. From the moment we pulled up it wasn’t at all how I had expected. I said to mum – ‘I wish we had come here sooner.’
