Hope House Children’s Hospices provides specialist nursing care and support to children with conditions so serious that they are not expected to reach adulthood.
The dedicated teams at Hope House help 750 children aged 0 to 25 years enjoy the best possible quality of life and make the most of every moment – with as much happiness and fulfilment as possible. They provide specialist nursing, palliative care, and activities that involve and develop them while helping them have fun.
They help their parents and families too, who can often find it hard to cope, both emotionally and practically. Hope House provides care and support from diagnosis, throughout the lifetime of a child and often well beyond for every mum, dad, sister and brother.
The charity has two hospices, Hope House in Oswestry and Tŷ Gobaith in Conwy. Both are bright, homely, active, happy and supportive places. The dedicated teams work from the hospices and in families’ own homes within local communities.
At the end of a child’s life, they are there to make sure their final moments are as comfortable as possible and that their family says goodbye in their own way and in their own time.
Bereavement counselling is available to any family after the death of their child – whether or not they have previously been cared for at Hope House – and to children who’ve lost someone close to them suddenly or unexpectedly. These services simply aren’t available anywhere else.
All Hope House’s services are free of charge.
The charity currently raises more than £6.5 million every year. This enables them to help just one in every three of the local families a week who face the pain of their child dying. They have set a mission to raise an additional £2.5 million every year by 2025 so they can help every child and family who needs them.
Because no one should face the death of a child alone.Donate today
