This January Service Manager Mike Higgins and Young Persons' and Transition Lead Lucy Brumpton welcomed the team from The Lighthouse Children’s Hospice in Russia for a visit to Milton. The main aim of the trip was to understand more about EACH’s work with transition for young adults, as well as an opportunity to share challenges and successes to inform and develop each other’s work.
The team started their visit with a tour and were blown away with the facilities especially the sensory room, playground, Den and the en-suite bedrooms with room for family and friends to stay. The tour gave them food for thought as they are currently having their hospice built (having previously been a community service only).
EACH works closely with hospices around the world, sharing best practise, learning and development – including hospices in Malaysia, Japan and Australia, as well as Russia.
