The Children’s Hospice South West Precious Lives Appeal, to open a new hospice to support the families of Plymouth and Cornwall, was launched at the beginning of September 2007 and on 5th September 2011 the announcement was made that the appeal target had been reached.
Little Harbour is set in a spectacular coastal location overlooking St. Austell Bay with beautiful views out to sea. Designed and built with a view to celebrating Cornish building traditions and its close proximity to the sea, Little Harbour has the feel of a ‘holiday home’ in a relaxed seaside setting.
Little Harbour opened its doors to its first families in December 2011 and is most conveniently situated for families who live in Cornwall, Plymouth and parts of South Devon.
At Little Harbour as with all our hospices, families will discover individual children’s bedrooms, accommodation for parents and siblings, a wide range of play and therapy facilities – including a messy play area, a Jacuzzi and a multi-sensory room – and a homely family kitchen and living room.

Little Harbour will offer a range of services such as 24 hour palliative care and end of life care, support for parents and well brothers and sisters, as well as help, advice and support in bereavement and beyond.
