Children’s Hospice Week 2022

For the Children: Children’s Hospice Week is the only week in the year dedicated to raising awareness and funds for children’s hospice and palliative care services across the UK, and the seriously ill children and young people they support.

This year it’s taking place between 20-26 June 2022.

Children’s hospices provide vital support for children and young people with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition. Everything they do is #ForTheChildren – helping families make the most of their lives together, no matter how short.

We are thrilled to announce that Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, has sent a personal message of support for #ChildrensHospiceWeek to celebrate the extraordinary work the UK’s 54 children’s hospices like Little Bridge House, Charlton Farm and Little Harbour do for children and young people with life-limiting conditions.

Seth’s dad Luke says he finds it hard to put into words the difference that Little Harbour has made to his family.

Seth, aged seven, was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, dystonia and epilepsy due to a placenta abruption at 29 weeks.

When we are at the hospice we don’t have to be brave, we don’t have to be strong – we can simply be a family.
