Haven House Children’s Hospice

Haven House Children’s Hospice (registered charity no. 1044296) is a special place for special children. Based in Woodford Green, Essex.

Just imagine what it must be like to know that your child may not live to see adulthood. Now think about having to cope with that emotion every day whilst trying to deal with the additional practical and financial pressures that would be placed on your family.

This is the reality that thousands of families across London and the Home Counties have to face every year. Haven House Children’s Hospice knows how difficult it is to be told that your child has a life-limiting or life-threatening condition as they have provided care and support for 350 such families across North and East London and West Essex since they opened in 2003.

By combining specialist nursing care for seriously ill children with help for the wider family, Haven House delivers a sense of support and trust, and, most importantly, can ease the burden of care.

The services at Haven House include day care, overnight stays and end of life care for children whose needs are complex. There is further assistance for the family including:

  • Toy home loan
  • Special yoga
  • A community play specialist
  • Music therapy
  • Coffee mornings for parents/carers
  • Support group for siblings

All of their services have been and always will be free to the families that use them but they are not free to provide. Every year it costs £2.5 million to fully resource the hospice, of which we need to raise 70% from voluntary sources.
