2022 is a special year for our charity. It was 15 years ago that our charity was founded, inspired and in memory of a remarkable little boy, Alexander.
Since then, we’ve given hundreds of children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and their families, the specialist care and support that they need.
Not only could your Will help secure your family’s future, it could also help ensure the future of our much-needed children’s hospice service. And it won’t cost you a penny right now.

We offer a range of care and support services for children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and their families.

What we do
We provide specialist care and support to children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and their families, across Berkshire and into surrounding counties.
You can help
Our vital work is only possible because of the kindness and support of wonderful people like you!
Alexander is the inspiration for our children’s hospice service, an extraordinary and brave boy who sadly passed away at the age of 8 from a rare brain tumour.

We are looking for dedicated individuals to join our dynamic team as we continue to develop and grow our children’s hospice service.

We understand that having a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition can impact on everything you do. That’s why we care for the child and the whole family.
Our holistic approach is bespoke for every child and family in order to provide the best possible care and support that they need.
As well as the clinical care, we open up opportunities for children and their siblings to experience fun, joy and adventures, and help families make precious memories for as long as they have.
End of life care
Need our help?
The word hospice should not seem scary and getting support from us doesn’t have to mean a child’s death is imminent. Helping to enrich the lives of the children and their families is at the heart of our service, our end of life and bereavement support is just a part of what we do.
Our children’s hospice service covers the whole of Berkshire and into surrounding counties. Anyone can make a referral to Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service and if you think your child may be eligible for our services, please do get in touch.
