Care and support for children and young people

We offer a family-centred, needs-led approach to care, ensuring all of the needs of the children and young people we care for are met - whether psychological, physical, emotional, social or spiritual.

In September 2019 we opened our doors to provide care. We hosted a very successful open day where children and young people, along with their families got to see The Nook for the first time.

Day care and short breaks

If you're caring for a child or young person with a life-threatening illness, often for 24 hours a day, seven days a week, you can feel like a huge strain has been placed on your family life. We hear families telling us that their lives are governed by the timetable of nursing and medical needs.

Transition to adult services

We support families through their transition from child to adult services.

Wellbeing support

The process of bereavement can start at the moment of diagnosis. We believe that having support available when you need it, both during your child’s life and afterwards, helps families to cope during the more difficult times.
