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.

Playtime just got more magical at our hospice!✨

Thank you so much to Lifelites for their latest donation of assistive and inclusive technology to help enrich the lives of the children and young people that we support.

Today Lifelites has been training members of Alexander’s Care Team on how to use all the new equipment and toys including Eyegaze which helps children with limited movement or restricted speech communicate and take control for themselves, using just the movement of their eyes. With most of the equipment easily portable, it means there are no limits to where and when we can play!

It was wonderful to be joined by some of our families to celebrate the donation of this new technology and, of course, have a play!

We are so grateful to the National Lottery Awards for helping to fund the important development of our Family Support programme.

The increased need to develop our Family Support programme has been driven by an increasing number of children with complex needs and a rising number of bereaved families. Thanks to National Lottery Awards’ generous donation of £9,250, we are able to widen the support we can give families including the recruitment of our Family Support Worker, parent group meetings and special events such as our remembrance days.
