The Children's Hospice

The hospice at Charlton Farm near Wraxall provides care to life-limited children and their families from across the South West; from South Gloucester, Bristol, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall, and the Isles of Scilly.

They are the only organisation in this area to provide such care, and some families may use the hospice for many years, from the time the child is first diagnosed as having an incurable condition which will mean they will die in childhood. They may come for planned short breaks, emergency care or end of life care, and will usually be accompanied by family members.

The whole family can stay at the hospice, and with a dedicated sibling support service available, this means that the well brothers and sisters can be cared for during their visit and enjoy spending time with other children in similar situations to their own.

A True Life Line - My Story

by PistonHeads member Nick MacBean (nickmac209)

"We were struggling to cope. I had to make the decision to give up work to support my family. We were at a knife's edge. Just coping, well just living."

"When Abbie was about 6 months old, and I was in intensive care with her after she had had further neurosurgery, a lady walked into the room. She told me she was from Children’s Hospice South West and that she wanted to help our family."
