Claire House Children’s Hospice helps seriously and terminally ill children live life to the full by creating wonderful experiences and bringing back a sense of normality to family life. By providing specialist nursing care and emotional support, we help families smile again when life couldn’t get any tougher.
When Claire House first opened the doors in 1998 we were only looking after ten families, now it is over 300. In the last six years alone, our referrals have gone up by 84%. Other significant changes include the provision of more emergency care and the rapidly increasing numbers of neonatal (baby) referrals.
Claire House has gained lots of experience over the last 20 years, but sadly we cannot stretch what we have any further. There is an urgent need to provide the lifeline 24/7 care which is vital to so many children and their families.
To meet the demand, we need to extend our services out into the community and have two children’s hospices, one on the Wirral and one in Liverpool – so whenever and wherever families need help, we are there.
We need your support to help make this a reality.
