shooting Star Children’s Hospices cares for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families.

 

We support families from diagnosis to end of life and throughout bereavement with a range of nursing, practical, emotional and medical care. Whether lives are measured in days, weeks, months or years, we’re here to make every moment count

About The Charity

Our bespoke support is free of charge to families and includes a comprehensive range of therapies and support groups for the whole family, specialist nursing care and respite, symptom management, end-of-life care and bereavement support.

We support 700 families living throughout Surrey and across 15 London boroughs. It costs £8.8 million a year to maintain our current level of care and just 8% of that income comes from central government funding, so we rely on our supporters’ generosity to keep the service running.
