Organisation type: 
Geographical remit: 


We provide care and support for children and young people with serious and terminal conditions, and their whole family, across the East Midlands. The care we offer is wide ranging; palliative care and end of life care, symptom management, emergency care, respite and short breaks and is available in the Hospice, at home and in hospitals.

We support every child and young person to fulfil their potential, and help families make the most of every precious moment, while capturing memories and keepsakes to treasure. Our facilities and services are second-to-none, and our specialist staff are exceptional. Which means we can give the best care, not just when it’s needed, but wherever it’s needed across the East Midlands, be that in our Hospice, in hospital or at home.

We’re here for the whole family, offering comfort and compassion during tough times, providing the highest level of professional care until the end, and support after.

Simply put, we’re here to brighten short lives, and support families, wherever they are.
