Our vision is for a world in which children and young people no longer face life-shortening conditions. And until that day comes, our mission will always be to offer them, and their families, as much support, love and laughter as they can handle. And to add in our special ingredient: the magic of yes.
We’re also determined to transform the world of children’s hospices. We’re tearing up the old rule books, taking a fresh and creative look at the way things are done. We’re offering new services that have never been done before. We’re listening and responding to children and their families, rather than telling them what they can or can’t do because ‘that’s the way it’s always been’.
Only the best is good enough
The Care Quality Commission (CQC), which inspect hospices, rates us as ‘outstanding’. This puts us in the top 1% of all of the organisations they inspect. We’ll never stop working towards being the best we can be.
