About Haven House Children’s Hospice
Just imagine what it must be like to know that your child may not live to see adulthood. Now think about having to cope with that emotion every day whilst trying to deal with the additional practical and financial pressures that would be placed on your family. This is the reality that thousands of families across London and the Home Counties have to face every year. By combining specialist nursing care for seriously ill children with help for the wider family, Haven House delivers a sense of support and trust, and, most importantly, can ease the burden of care. The services at Haven House include day care, overnight stays and end of life care for children whose needs are complex. There is further assistance for the family including: toy home loan, a community play specialist, music and movement therapy, a youth club and weekend packages for 11-19 year olds, coffee mornings and support groups for parents/carers and siblings.
At any one time, around 150 families in the local communities across North and East London and West Essex are benefiting from these services.
All of our services have been and always will be free to the families that use them; but they are not free to provide. Every year it costs £2.6 million to fully resource the hospice, of which we need to raise 70% from voluntary sources. Profits from the Local Hospice Lottery help Haven House Children’s Hospice to meet their running costs and provides a regular stream of income on which they can depend. As a Local Hospice Lottery member you are helping to ensure that children and young people with life limited conditions are getting the best opportunity they can.
