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 250 families both in our hospice and in family homes.

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. As well as touching our supporters’ hearts, our exciting, high-profile fundraising campaigns make a real difference to families who too often have nowhere else to turn.
