Eddie Farwell MBE

Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer

As Co-Founder of Children’s Hospice South West with his late wife Jill, Eddie has been involved with every aspect of the Charity since its formation in 1991.  

Jill and Eddie were inspired to found the Charity following the exceptional care they received for their own two life-limited children at the world’s first children’s hospice, Helen House in Oxford. Little Bridge House, the South West’s first children’s hospice opened in 1995.
