Making creative therapies possible


Become a Friend of EACH

You could make a difference to the lives of local families today by becoming a Friends of EACH. Your support would allow us to continue and develop the vital services we offer to families at a time when they need it most.

Across our hospices, it will cost £182,101 to fund our art therapy service for the next three years

That is £5,058 a month to develop and continue providing these vital wellbeing services that so many families depend on.

To pledge an annual gift of £200, £500 or £1,000 which can be paid annually, quarterly or monthly, download and return this form or call 01223 800 8015.

The impact you can make:

It costs
House


a year to hire external rooms and venues for community therapeutic sessions.
Guitar

could fund six sessions of dedicated music therapy providing a means of interaction, communication and expression for children and families.
Our plans for the future
Pen


More qualified, trained staff: Making sure every hospice has qualified Therapists, and training existing care staff to run creative activities that have a therapeutic benefit.
Pen2


More group sessions:
 Increasing the amount of group therapy sessions that will allow our care team to pinpoint service users that may benefit from a more personalised therapy plan.
Pen3


More transport: Additional vehicles could allow for more sessions to be delivered to families in the home or community, in a safe and familiar environment that reduces the need for the family to travel to a hospice.
Pen4


More high quality materials:
 It is important to be able to introduce people to different ways of communicating with a variety of expressive materials.
The difference we make

"After Elliot died his brother Louis really struggled with is emotions. He was angry and unable to express himself. EACH were there for him. The music therapist worked with Louis to help him make sense of all the emotions he was going through. As part of his sessions Louis was able to write and record his own songs. This gave him a way to communicate in a way he couldn't through talking. Music really was a lifeline for him."

Mum, Charlotte

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’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
  • 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

  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. 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
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • 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
