At Bluebell Wood, we support young adults aged 14 up to the age of 25, helping you and them through the transition from children’s to adult services.

Children who come to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice can attend our Youth Group from the age of 14, so they can be around people of a similar age and enjoy lots of new and exciting activities together.

When your child reaches 18, they will begin the move from children’s to adult services. This means changing consultants and a nursing team that they might be familiar with and at the same time sometimes leaving school or looking for their own accommodation.

This can be a lot to deal with, so our Care Team are on hand to help with any concerns you might have, and offer you and your child advice and support.

We’re also here to be a friendly face, so your child always has someone to talk to. Whether they fancy a pizza night-in, shaking up some mocktails in a masterclass, or even if they just want some quality time on the Xbox, we’re here to support you and your child however we can.

Your child can also get support for services including education, housing, and health and social care organisations. We’re here to help them to become as independent as possible.
