For UK children's hospice information, contact Children's Hospices UK. This association is the national voice for children's hospice services, and through them the children and families who use them. ACH works together with other organisations to support the development of best practice and provision of children's hospice services across the UK.
Naomi House is the children’s hospice for Berkshire, Dorset, Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Wiltshire and the fringes of West Sussex and Surrey. "We help over 220 children with life limiting conditions and support their families. We are there for the good days, difficult days and last days."
Helen & Douglas House in Oxford, a registered UK charity providing respite and end of life care for children and young adults with life-shortening conditions, as well as support and friendship for the whole family. Helen House was the world's first children's hospice, and opened in November 1982. The two hospice houses, Helen House for children and Douglas House for young adults, are bright, vibrant and positive places, where the emphasis is on living life to the full, even when that life is short.
