  • Precious time in the sensory room


    When a child has a life-limiting condition, the world can be a dark and lonely place. Your gift can help change that.

    Our sensory rooms help children experience the world around them. Equipped with a range of specialist facilities including musical floors, fibre optics, mirrors, lights, bubble tubes and water beds, these unique rooms are incredibly popular and adaptable to a range of conditions. They can help relax and sooth and they provide a stimulating environment supporting non-verbal communication.


  • A memory box


    When a child has a life-limiting condition and time is short, creating special memories is critical. Your gift can make that happen.

    Memory boxes play a vital role in our care service. They give families a chance to take part in precious activities together such as making hand casts, and collect treasured items in one place. Our qualified care team can use the memory boxes in a number of ways including working with siblings to help them capture their favourite memories of their brother and sister, which can be a focal point of therapy sessions in the future.

  • A family session in the hydrotherapy pool


    When a child has a life-limiting condition, there are many things they’re told they can’t do. Your gift can ensure they can.

    Some families are told it’s not safe to take their child swimming, while others find public pools a difficult environment. Our hydrotherapy pools are a safe space for families to create special memories. For some it’s the first time they’ve been able to take their child swimming. Hydrotherapy also provides physical benefits such as helping muscle tone and strength, enabling mobility not possible out of water.

  • music

    A music therapy session


    When a child has a life-limiting condition, communicating with people can be hard. Your gift can help change that.

    Music therapy gives children an opportunity to communicate in new and profound ways, particularly as many we care for are unable to speak and struggle to express themselves and their feelings in a safe environment. Sessions are regularly recorded to give families precious keepsakes.

  • A short break for the whole family


    When a child has a life-limiting condition, families are often at breaking point. Your gift can give families a much-needed break.

    A short break at one of our hospices allows families time together, away from being carers, to enjoy being a family. They have access to the full range of facilities, including sensory room, soft play, hydrotherapy, arts and crafts and various therapeutic activities. It’s also an opportunity for parents to get some much needed rest and have meals cooked for them, all while our fully-qualified nurses look after their child’s medical needs.
