Our support services are wide ranging and bespoke to each family including end of life treatment and care, respite short breaks, counselling, sibling support groups, music therapy, home visits and much much more.  It costs more than £5.1m to keep our doors open for families across South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire, North Lincolnshire and Chesterfield and Derbyshire. We receive around 15% of our funding from government sources.

Our team of passionate fundraisers work across the communities we serve to generate funds to help children and families make memories they’ll always treasure. We are the only children’s hospice in South Yorkshire, and each and every penny our team raises helps us to put smiles on the faces of the families in our care.
