Who we are

For families facing terminal illness

We are ellenor, (formerly EllenorLions Hospices) a charity funded by the generosity of our local community, offering the best care and support to families facing terminal illness in Kent. We are the only charity in the county that provides hospice care for people of all ages – babies, children and adults - and their families. This includes pain and symptom relief, end of life care, respite, bereavement support and emotional and spiritual care.

Our Children’s Hospice Care, (formerly chYps), is provided in the comfort of the family home and spans across North and West Kent and the London Borough of Bexley. Adults living in Gravesham, Dartford and Swanley, receive care in their place of choice, including their own homes, at our Hospice in Gravesend and in local care homes.

Your support means ellenor can care for families where they choose, giving home from home care wherever it’s needed.  If someone’s last wish is to die at home surrounded by their family, we can help to grant that wish, or if a child needs life-saving chemotherapy then they can have it in the comfort of their own home, preventing the need for stressful or lengthy stays in hospital.

Your support has a huge impact.  It helps families stay together to make the most of every second they have together, whatever happens.
