Trusts & Foundations


The value of trusts and foundations


The support of charitable trusts and foundations makes a significant contribution in helping us sustain essential services and develop specialist care. This enables Helen & Douglas House to be at the forefront of palliative care for children and young adults with life-shortening conditions; internationally, nationally and locally.


We are most grateful for the generous support of all the trusts who support our pioneering and life-enhancing work.


Opportunities to further our common aims


We welcome enquiries and open engagement with all trusts with whom we can further our common purposes.


We have a “total care” approach to patients and families, and invite funding to support the breadth of our hospice operation.  This includes:

  • Medical service and research in paediatric and young adult palliative care
  • Nursing and specialist care work
  • Physiotherapy
  • Bereavement and family support
  • Sibling support
  • Social work
  • Chaplain and spiritual support
  • Music therapy
  • Complementary therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Youth work
  • Volunteer involvement and development
  • Medical supplies
  • Capital equipment and building development

as well as capacity building in management, retail and support services to enable the organisation to function efficiently and effectively.


Funding at all levels makes a significant difference to the young people and families we look after. 

  • This can be a one-off, repeat or multi-year commitment.
  • Grants may range from several hundred pounds to tens of thousands of pounds per year, and allow partial or full funding of highly valued care services, facilities and projects.
