Charity Name: Claire House Children’s Hospice
Claire House opened its doors to children in December 1998 providing a service for children aged 0 – 23 years with life threatening or life limiting conditions and their families from Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales and the Isle of Man. Since 1998, Claire House has gone from strength to strength and is now providing leadership and focus for its many children, families and staff and also for supporters. In 2006 we opened our teenage extension which provides the facilities for young people, we now provide care for over 200 families. The building of this hospice for terminally ill children was inspired by the bravery and tragic death of a little girl from Wallasey, Claire Cain, who died in 1989. An appeal was successfully launched to raise £2 million to build and equip Claire House, which was totally funded by grants and donations.
The aim of Claire House Children’s Hospice is to enhance the quality of life for the child with a life-limiting condition, offering a high quality service with both personal and professional support. We believe that every child that comes to Claire House is on a journey and every child is unique and incredible special to us. We have a passionate nursing and fundraising team who ensure that we can provide this care whenever any of our children need it.
