We’d love to hear your voice this Children’s Hospice Week!

Mar 28, 2017

This year Children’s Hospice Week runs from 22nd to 28th May. The theme is about changing the public’s perception about some of the myths surrounding children's palliative care, including amplifying the voices of families receiving our services.

We’ll be taking to social media throughout the week to shout about what we do – and we’d love to include your voices! If you have something you’d like to share about your experience of EACH – a short quote for Twitter, or a longer story for Facebook or our website, you can...

Please note:
Submitted quotes and videos may be used on the EACH website and social media channels, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Quotes may also be used more widely in our marketing activities, for example in printed leaflets and in the press.

  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad

  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
