Frequently asked questions

By leaving a gift in your Will to EACH, you will help us ensure the best possible quality of life, making every moment count for children and families.

Our hospices are happy, homely places for children to be children, and a dependable, supportive and restful space for families to be families.

Our brilliant team makes every moment count with supportive activities and events, including the simple pleasures of play, water, art, and music. We have hospices at Milton (Cambridge), The Nook (Norwich) and The Treehouse (Ipswich) and depending on a family’s needs and wishes, we also provide care in the family home, in hospital or the wider community. This ensures every family is somewhere they feel safe and comfortable.

Ultimately, your gift will allow us to deliver care, ensuring the best possible quality of life for babies, children and young people - and for us to support their families.

EACH is independently inspected by the Care Quality Commission, who have given all three of our hospices the highest possible rating of “Outstanding”. Supporting us means you are supporting some of the best hospices in the UK.

We have a reputation for excellence and working collaboratively, sharing skills and expertise within our teams and in partnership with healthcare colleagues across the sector. We’re able to forge strong, close relationships to ensure the best possible care and support.

We are also regulated by the Charity Commission, who ensure that charities operate legally and transparently. EACH has also voluntarily registered with the Fundraising Regulator and Investors in People, to make sure we are meeting the highest standards in our fundraising and HR practices.

Additionally, we are governed by a team of trustees, including bereaved parents who were previously supported by EACH. These trustees know first-hand how important it is to maintain our high quality of care by managing the organisation well.

Yes! EACH works with a Will-writing service called Farewill, who can help you write a free Will online or over the phone.

You are under no obligation to leave EACH a gift if you use our free Will service.
