Chestnut Tree House - children's hospice
Chestnut Tree House cares for around 300 children and young people with life-shortening conditions across Sussex and South East Hampshire, all of whom are unlikely to reach adulthood.
On a visit to the House, kids can be astronauts for the day in the multi-sensory room, discover creepy crawlies on a woodland walk, or form their very own pop group in the music room. It is a place where parents can just be parents, and not carers, and where siblings have people to talk to who understand.
As well as care provided at the House, there is a Community Nursing Team who visit families at home, taking children out to explore their local community or simply giving tired families and carers the chance to take a well-earned break.
Then, when the time comes, Chestnut Tree House help families say goodbye, in whatever way feels right for them, either at home or in the hospice itself. They offer ongoing bereavement support for the whole family.
All care is offered to families free of charge, so Chestnut Tree House relies heavily on the generosity of the local community. For today. For tomorrow. For the Now.
There’s lots of ways to support our local businesses right now.
