East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) supports local families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions. Our care and support, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, is tailored for the needs of all family members and delivered wherever needed- the family home, at hospital, in the community or at one of our three hospices.
Our Norfolk hospice at Quidenham has been an incredible home-from home to many families for more than 25 years. However, the hospice was converted from an old country house and is restricted in its facilities and development. We believe children and families in Norfolk and North Suffolk should be able to receive the very best of services, in an accessible purpose-built environment.
Our vision for a new hospice in the heart of Norfolk will enable us to provide more choice and flexibility to families, increased overnight accommodation, improved care for bereaved families, improved medical equipment to meet increasingly complex care needs, hydrotherapy, more play and recreation spaces as well as improved facilities for on-site family support groups and activities.
With a £10 million appeal target to achieve our vision, the support of the Norfolk community is vital to our success. By us all working together, we can achieve our vision of a new children's hospice in the heart of Norfolk.
On 15th November 2017 we started building the nook and we plan to open for families in early Autumn 2019. In April we announced that we have less than £1m to go so every penny really does count.
Thank you so much to the local community - we need your continued to support to help us finish.
