We've done some amazing things over the past 15 years and we couldn't have done it without your help! Since opening our doors we have become a vital resource to over 900 life-limited children and their families. Their number, and the need for our services, is growing all the time.


Here are just some of our achievements over the last 15 years:

  1. In 2001 we launched our Toy Home Loan scheme which is still going today.
  2. Our Buddies group (sibling support) was formed to support brothers and sisters of a life-limited child.
  3. We have opened five shops which help raise funds and awareness for our hospice.
  4. We introduced our Expert Parent sessions to enable parents to be more informed.
  5. We restored our beautiful chapel to be used by parents as a space for prayer or reflection.
  6. We refurbished our bedrooms and bathroom to improve our children's care during stays.
  7. We built a new Holistic Care Centre to provide therapies including yoga, physiotherapy and counselling.
  8. We launched a new website to focus on providing information to our parents, supporters and referrers.
  9. We started a Teenage Cancer group where our teens can get together, talk and have fun.
  10. Mark Carney, the Governor of Bank of England visited our hospice and planted a tree in our grounds.
  11. We work with other children's hospices across London (CHAL) to deliver better services.
  12. Our Vision 2020 sets out goals so that we can support more children and families.
  13. Our Hospice at Home is being rolled out so that we can reach more children in their home environment.
  14. We host Memory Days - a day to remember for our bereaved parents.
  15. Five years ago we launched our first Will week and highlighted how important gifts in Wills are to the future of our hospice. Find out about our upcoming Will week here.
