About us:

At Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, we care for children and young adults with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions. We are currently supporting around 290 families both in our hospice and in families’ own homes.

Our support services are wide ranging and bespoke to each family including end of life treatment and care, music therapy, counselling, sibling support groups, home visits and much more. 

We believe that every family deserves to make magical memories with their child and Bluebell Wood is a home from home for families facing the toughest of times.

There are plenty of fun activities for children to try including soft play, arts and crafts and music therapy.

 Every day, we need to raise £11,000 to keep our doors open, and only around 10% of our funding is from the government.
