We provide Hospice care & support to patients and their loved ones living in Kent and East Sussex. Discover how we can help you.
Our specialist team is getting to know amazing children with life-threatening and life limiting illness and their families in our community as they aim to ease the strain on family life.
Whether it’s help with nursing care, emotional support such as counselling and bereavement therapy, or practical support from our trained volunteers, the team is here for the whole family, including siblings. We also want to ensure children can be children, so our staff are equipped with specialist and sensory toys and activities to help each child have fun and make memories.
“We’re delighted that Hospice in the Weald for Children is now officially underway and our fantastic team are out and about with home visits, offering emotional and practical support and making a real difference to the lives of children and their families.”
Nick Farthing – Chief Executive
Hospice in the Weald for Children is powered by friendly and experienced staff and volunteers who have big smiles, and fun and games up their sleeves.
“As a paediatric nurse for the last 20 years I have worked in a variety of roles and settings. It is my job to support the amazing team and to work collaboratively with other providers in the area so we can deliver the best care to children - and I still get to meet families too.”
“I’ve been working with children for 12 years, mainly in educational and early years settings. Messy play is my favourite – if we’re all having fun, it doesn’t matter how much mess we’re making. You can’t take yourself too seriously – I’m often told that with me, every day is a musical!”
“I have been a paediatric nurse for 25 years, working in children’s palliative care for the past 10 years. I am passionate about working in partnership and providing the best possible care for children and their families. It’s important to be able to engage with children on all levels, ensuring they feel safe and secure with you and most importantly being able to put a smile on their face.”
“I enjoy working with children and their families, making a difference to their lives, no matter how big or small – I have spent much of my career working with children in a variety of different settings. Sensory play is one of the best parts, introducing music, light, smells and touch to play.”
