Our children’s service supports families from across Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Milton Keynes who have a child or young person diagnosed with a life-limiting condition. Our care is not just provided at the hospice itself but in the hospital, school, care or family home – wherever support is needed the most. Find out more about our children's care services.
Our children’s service consists of an in-patient unit, community nursing team, day support and supportive care team, all of whom will support your child and family, both at times of crisis and when you need our specialist care from day to day. You can relax, safe in the knowledge that your child is receiving high-quality support from our team of nurses, doctors, therapists and social workers.
Call our free children's advice line for specialist support for you and your child, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Spend the day with us
Our children's in-patient service is a place where children and their families can come and stay when our specialist support is needed.
Stay at the hospice
We don't just care for your child at the hospice - our children's community team can visit you and support you in your own home, too.
We care for you at home
Our support does not stop after the death of a child. We continue to support all members of the family for as long as they need it.
From time to time, you and your child might experience feelings of anxiety, stress and pain – complementary therapy can help.
Sometimes expressing your thoughts and feelings can be hard. Art therapy can help children to do this.
Music therapy supports children and young people in expressing their thoughts, feelings and experiences with a qualified music therapist.
We are here to help and can offer emotional and social support to your child, family, friends and carers.
