We couldn’t do it without you

How you can help raise over £3m a year to care for terminally ill children.

We need your support more than ever

There are times in all our lives which are really challenging and this is especially so for those most vulnerable: the children we care for and their families. Our care team, nurses and doctors are working hard to support them.

Helen & Douglas House is a local charity which needs to raise over £3m every year to care for local terminally ill children and over 80% of that comes from public support like yours. Our hospice relies on donations and we can only continue to help local families with your support.

We are delighted that the exceptional care we provide to local families has been recognised as ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), our regulator. This ‘outstanding’ rating recognises our approach of putting the families we care for at the heart of everything we do and our aim to be world-class.

Give what you can

We can’t do this without you. Over 80% of the money we need to support local children and families comes from kind donations from people like you.
