How we help
From babies to young people up to the age of 18, we support families, children and young people living with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk from diagnosis to end of life and throughout bereavement. We do this through a range of services delivered where the family wish – in their own home, at hospital, in the community or at one of our three hospices
in Milton, Ipswich and Quidenham.
We know the word hospice can seem scary but receiving care from EACH doesn’t have to mean that the child’s death is imminent, care at end of life isn’t the only service EACH provide. Many children and young people who use our services are extremely active but need additional support and care.
Your child might receive the support of a play specialist
to give them access to appropriate play activities helping them grow in confidence and aid their physical and mental wellbeing, enjoy sensory rooms at the hospices, have art therapy
or music therapy sessions
to offer the opportunity to interact, communicate and express themselves or sessions in the therapeutic hydrotherapy pool
Our support stretches further than the young person to include families, we know the stresses and strains living with a life-threatening illness can place on all the family. We run special family events
where families can meet others in similar situations to them, sibling days always full of smiles and laughter, and spiritual care. We have a range of information leaflets for families
and our Family Information Service
- an online directory of useful links and resources.
All our support is provided free of charge and available 365 days a year. To see if you might be eligible for our services please see our acceptance criteria
We also have a number of services for professionals working within children’s hospices - find out how we can support your practice and professional development.
