We need your help to create more ‘Moments that Matter’

Ever since Helen & Douglas House opened as the world’s first children’s hospice in 1982 our charity has helped local terminally ill children live life to the full even though their lives may be short, helping families create happy memories together.

This is made possible by the generosity of the general public. We need to raise £3.6m a year to care for local families providing respite and end-of-life care and cannot do this without your help.

How your donation could make a big difference

  • A £30 online donation or three people making a £10 text donation could pay for a nurse to give one-to-one care to a local young person like Mason or Ben at the hospice or at home for an hour.
  • £175 could pay for the Sibling Group activity for a whole day. Helen & Douglas House run a Siblings Group for brothers and sisters of children who have life-shortening conditions like Toby, Harvey or Ethan, so that children facing the future without their brother or sister can come together to discuss their feelings with others experiencing the same thing.

Children’s Hospice Week

Children’s Hospice Week is the only week in the year dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the 49,000 children across the UK living with life-shortening conditions, and the vital services that support them.


Children’s Hospices help these children enjoy the simple moments in life that we all cherish. Join us in celebrating the wonderful work of your local children’s hospice!

Moments that Matter

When you have a child who is terminally ill, family life is turned upside down and time together becomes more precious than ever before.

When families stay at the hospice, Helen & Douglas House make every moment matter creating wonderful memories for them to treasure forever.
