Having lost his sight due to eye cancer, Huxley enjoyed weekly music therapy sessions with our very own therapist Roxanne help build his confidence. We also provided the family with home care as Huxley's mum had just welcomed a new baby brother for Huxley.  Our care  team took Huxley to the park, played with him, and understood his medical needs so mum and dad never had to worry. It gave mum time to rest, to go to appointments and run errands.

“At a time when we needed it the most, Haven House were there for us." - Chloe, Huxley mum

Annabelle has a con dition called Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Her mum and dad were initially told that she would not live beyond 18months. However, Annabelle is a fighter. Having beat the odds, Annabelle now goes to school and is a proud big sister to Eva. She has frequent sessions with our hospice physiotherapist Andreea.

Isma was born with Ventriculomegaly, a condition resulting in the brain failing to develop and caused by a lack of oxygen. At Haven House Isma enjoys yoga therapy which supports her mobility and co-ordination.  She loves to play in the sensory room and in the beautiful grounds adapted to her needs. Isma's mum comes to our coffee mornings and her siblings attend our buddies group to help them not feel so isolated, build friendships and have a support network.
 "I felt that Isma had somewhere she would be understood." - Mehnaz, Isma's mum

Olivia was born with a very rare genetic condition causing complex learning and physical disabilities. Olivia underwent knee surgery in 2020 which has improved her walking. She recently won ‘Student of the Term’ for using her walking frame independently every day. She also really enjoys music therapy and watching Frozen in our rec play room. 


Malachi was diagnosed at six months with Vein of Galen Malformation (VGM), a life-threatening condition. A condition that required a complex, but lifesaving operation. Tragically, Malachi suffered a brain injury during his operation causing severe neurological issues and leaving him unable to talk or walk and he is fed via a tube.

Sylvia, Malachi's mum, began using Haven House for overnight respite care in 2016. Now Malachi and his siblings use our specialised playground, adapted for Malachis needs. His siblings also regularly join our buddies group for fun activities.
