Trusts and Foundations

Support the vital work of our children’s hospice service

We are proud of the strong partnerships we have established with many trusts and foundations over the years and are keen to develop new relationships with funders who share our aims.  

The generosity of charitable trusts and foundations has made a significant impact on the development of our service over the years. From funding for specific services, equipment, salaries and resources, we are hugely grateful to them for helping us in our mission to reach out to every child and family that needs us.
