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.




This is one of our virtual gifts which allow supporters to help in a more personal way, selecting an activity or special moment for a family who rely on a specific part of our care service.

When you buy a virtual gift you’ll receive a certificate explaining the benefit of your gift – display this proudly to remind yourself how amazing you are or pass it on if you’re buying the gift for a supported family in lieu of a present for a relative or friend.

We aim to provide the actual service gift you have bought. In some instances it may not be appropriate to deliver this service, and so we may provide a different service gift to ensure the family receives a precious moment relevant to their specific needs.
