We have a good track record of working with grant-making trusts and foundations to help fund specific activities at the hospice and in the community.

Trusts and foundations have helped to fund:

  • specific services or projects, such as our toy home loan service
  • salary costs including specialist nurses and health care support workers
  • equipment costs such as cots and hoists
  • capital costs including the refurbishment of rooms or new buildings in our grounds
  • unrestricted funds for areas of greatest need

Funders, such as The Pears Foundation choose to make grants over a number of years and contribute to our core costs. Long-term commitments such as these ensure a sustainable future for our services and allow us to plan effectively for the future.

The Amy Winehouse Foundation

Provided capital funding for a purpose-built music therapy room and musical instruments in our Holistic Care Centre.  This enabled us to expand our music therapy work which helps our children to communicate, make music and have lots of fun.

BBC Children in Need Appeal

We are delighted to be supported by this funder.  We are currently in receipt of a second, three-year grant from CIN. This funding pays for a healthcare support worker who is a vital link between our families and the hospice. She ensures all our children who come for respite or day care get the most out of each activity while they are with us - this includes plenty of fun including beach themed activities in the summer and planting in our gardens. Every child has the right to have joy in their lives and Children in Need helps the hospice deliver this.     

Epic Foundation

The Epic Foundation is a fairly new international grant funder, and they have been supporting us since January 2016 with unrestricted grant funding.  We were one of only 4 UK based to be supported by Epic and this is much appreciated, as it enables us to use their grant most effectively and use the funds where they are most needed.  #Beepic #makegivingthenorm

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation 

Following an introduction by The Epic Foundation, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation paid a visit to Haven House in the summer of 2017 to look at our newly piloted Hospice at Home Project.  We are thrilled that the Foundation now part funds this project which enables us to deliver elements of hospice care to families in their own homes.  This is a great innovation for parents who couldn't otherwise access our services.
