Acorns Children’s Hospice provides babies, children and young people aged 0 – 18 years who have life limiting or life threatening conditions and associated complex needs with a network of specialist palliative nursing care and support. 

Acorns provide a holistic service which meets the needs of both the children and their families, including the bereaved. This includes short break provision; emergency and end of life care; therapeutic and psychosocial support; sibling services and family support. In the past year, we have supported 787 children and 1,223 family members across the organisation, including those who have been bereaved.
