Business information and events group, Euromoney Institutional Investor plc has launched a three-year charity partnership with us to support our new Family Welfare and Resilience Project.

Following a pitch process which began last year with over 50 applicants, Haven House was chosen via a worldwide staff vote in April 2015. We will work with employees to raise £370,000 which will launch and then fund the multi-disciplinary project for three years.

The project will support the introduction of a social work and counselling service, expansion of our toy home loan service and provision of infrastructure support within the hospice’s Holistic Care Centre. Together these services are designed to nurture and help the whole family cope and build resilience while dealing with the practicalities of having a seriously-ill child.

These services do not receive any statutory funding, yet are vital in supporting the entire family - mum, dad, brothers and sisters - at the times when they need it most.

The partnership will involve employee fundraising as well as programme of volunteering opportunities for staff at the hospice grounds, events and retail stores.

Launching the partnership, Jenni Anderson, Director of Income Generation and Marketing at Haven House said: “This is undoubtedly one of Haven House’s most significant corporate partnerships to date and we’re delighted to be working with the team at Euromoney.

“This partnership will also enable us to kick-start our 2020 Vision to increase the number of children and families we can support through multi-disciplinary, holistic care. We’re looking forward to developing a long-lasting relationship with Euromoney to support our families and those we are yet to reach.”
