Children’s Hospice South West offers respite stays, emergency care, end of life care and bereavement care to life-limited children and their whole family at our three children’s hospices, Little Bridge House in North Devon, Charlton Farm in Bristol and Little Harbour in Cornwall.

A big part of our work is creating a home-from-home, where mums, dads, brothers and sisters can find time and space to feel normal and to do things as a family without the burden of caring. They often say they get to be 'mummy and daddy again'.

We are the only organisation in the South West providing hospice care in a hospice environment for children with life-limiting conditions and their families.

Life-limiting means the child is unlikely to reach adulthood. There are over
1,000 such children in the South West which means 1,000 different families struggling to deal with the unique challenges of coping with a child who has a life-limiting condition.

At Children’s Hospice South West we have one simple goal: to make the most of short and precious lives. Sadly, the need for hospice care will never disappear but with your help we can be there all of the time.
