We need your help more than ever

Please help us continue to provide vital support to children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and their families

Supporting our families through the pandemic

As we face another national lockdown, it remains an extremely challenging time for everyone, none more so than the children and families that rely on children’s hospice services like ours.

But one less thing our families need to worry about is that they will continue to have our full support. We will not let them face this alone.

What we do

We provide vital support to children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and their families, across Berkshire and the surrounding counties.

About us

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.

Our services

We understand that having a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition can impact on everything you do.

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 the 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.
