Fundraise & Get Involved

Our Services are free of charge to all patients and their loved ones. We need to raise over £8 million every year to provide outstanding Hospice care to the local community.

Children's Hospice Update

Here we bring you the latest on Children’s Hospice in the Weald, which we are developing to provide Hospice care for children, young people, and those important to them.

Why are we launching a service?

Society doesn’t do enough to accommodate children with life-limiting conditions. They are often unable to engage in activities provided by local communities and staff are not sufficiently trained to care for them. It’s tough for families too – parents and grandparents care for their children round the clock, while siblings may struggle to understand what’s going on.

We are lightening that load by creating a free service for local families offering home visits, emotional support and a new Children’s Centre to play, get creative and receive care.

Fun, functional and free

Our new Children’s Centre will offer a range of activities so children can find fun amongst the challenges their diagnosis presents. Work is about to start at our Hospice in Pembury to create a self-contained children’s centre complete with an activity room, sensory room and an accessible bathroom.

The space overlooks our Hospice gardens, giving children the chance to embrace nature and play in a peaceful environment.

Get involved with the Children’s Hospice

We’re looking for children and families to share feedback. Please get in touch if you have an idea, or would you benefit from this new service. Our team have been visiting children’s hospices and other local organisations to gather ideas and build relationships, so contact us if you’re interested in working with us too. Please contact Fiona Ashmore, our Lead Children’s Nurse on 01892 820 502 or Fiona.Ashmore@hospiceintheweald.org.uk
