Objectives

We help to make the most of short and precious lives across the South West

For more than 30 years Children's Hospice South West has been caring for children and young people with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions by providing hospice care and professional family support services. The care offered at each of our 3 hospices is not just about medical and nursing support for sick children and young people but enriching the lives of them and their whole family

Our purpose, vision and ethosOur purpose is to make the most of short and precious lives and to put children, young people and their families at the centre of all we do.Our vision is to provide high quality care services to every child and young person in the South West who may not live to their 18th birthday.Our ethos is to ensure that everyone (Trustees, staff and volunteers) places children, young people and their families at the centre of the organisation. 

In order to achieve this, everyone will be expected to promote a strong, caring, community environment, characterised by a culture of sensitivity, trust, consideration and respect for others.
