Corporate support is vital in helping the children and their families who come to Helen & Douglas House to live every moment. Our children’s hospice is a special place where families can make the most of their time together and create happy memories during their children’s short lives. The care we offer is provided free of charge to the families who need it and are eligible.
We rely on the generosity of the public to keep our doors open, with voluntary donations making up the majority of the £3.6m we need to find this year to run the hospice service. Find out more about what we do and who we help at Helen & Douglas House.

Help care for local children, like Lily-Mae
Lily-Mae, from Witney, was born in 2013. At two years old she was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome, which caused regular seizures and other complications. Although it took some time for her mum, Leanne, to come around to the idea of going to a hospice, she eventually visited for a look round. Today, she is now so glad she did come for that visit as we helped them both make precious memories together and Leanne got some respite from being a carer. Also, in Lily-Mae’s final hours in September 2021, we cared for and supported her whole family in a place they felt at home.
‘Helen & Douglas House was my daughter’s special place, to be safe, smile & be happy. A place for me to be mummy and to take ‘the carer’ role away. Life is precious and here we were able to make memories that we could treasure forever.’ Leanne, Lily-Mae’s mummy
