Children are children first and foremost, and at Hospice in the Weald, we want to ensure we are providing opportunities to have fun.
We learn and develop when we’re having fun; play can make things feel better and work as a distraction from what is going on. Providing fun activities in the home and outdoors are ways that we can support children and their families. In the future, we also have exciting plans for a dedicated Children’s Centre.
Activities in the home
Our dedicated support workers are the experts in having fun and will ensure there is a range of creative activities, sensory fun and games for children and young people to reach their full potential.
We’ll always have new ways to help children have fun and make sure that children are doing what they want to do. If we’re playing pirates one week, and the next week it’s princesses, we’ve got it covered.
Opportunities in the community
We are passionate about children and young people having access to fun activities and creating memories. We will provide an opportunity to enjoy outings and activities in the local area, or simply be an extra pair of hands to support you as a family on days out.
Activities in our Children's Centre (in the future)
Our Children’s Centre is a little way off yet, but until then, we’re putting all our efforts into delivering activities, fun and play in the home and the community.
Our vision is a space full of fun and laughter. The children’s centre will be fully equipped to meet all your child’s needs with safe and appropriate floors and lighting, an accessible wet room, sensory equipment and activities and a dedicated entrance that’s wheelchair accessible. It will provide a space for families to meet up and feel connected with others who may be in a similar situation, or a safe space to leave your child with a dedicated team of nurses and support workers who will provide all specialist nursing care and fun activities whilst you have a much-deserved break.
