Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service is an award-winning charity that provides essential support to families of children with life-limiting and life threatening conditions across Berkshire and in the surrounding communities.

John and Fiona Devine from Windsor set up the charity in memory of their extraordinary little boy who sadly passed away at the age of 8 in early 2006 from a rare brain tumour.  Their personal experience, and subsequent extensive research, led them to realise that there was a vital need for a local children’s hospice service and hospice. 

Our children’s hospice service means very different things for each child and their family and as such our care is very personal. Whatever and wherever the need, we are dedicated to bringing comfort and care to these families. Our services include: respite care, specialist play, symptom management, family support, end of life care and bereavement support. Care is delivered either at home, in hospital, in schools or within our very own children’s hospice, which was opened in Summer 2018. Designed to complement the community service, the hospice has state-of-the-art facilities such as a hydrotherapy pool, sensory room, music room, games room, family accommodation and bereavement suite.

We currently support around 120 children and their families, but we are committed to growing our service and reaching out to every child and their family that needs us. In Berkshire alone we know that there are over 600 children with life-limiting conditions.

Almost all the money we need to deliver our children’s hospice service comes from voluntary donations and every penny raised make a real difference to local families.
