East Anglia's Children's Hospices
Who we are
East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk and supports their families. Our family centred approach includes:
- specialist nursing care
- symptom management support
- short breaks
- wellbeing activities
- and counselling
We offer families flexibility and control over where they receive their care and support, including where their child dies; at home, in hospital or at one of three hospices at Milton (Cambridge), Quidenham (Norfolk) and The Treehouse (Ipswich). More than half of our care and support is delivered in the family home and community, in surroundings familiar and comfortable for the family.
Our hospices aren’t just about end of life care; they’re often very happy and fun places, where young people can live life to their full potential. They are places where families feel safe, at home and where they can spend quality time together; enabling parents to be parents not caregivers. When time is short, we help families make the most of their precious time together and create memories that last forever.
We rely on voluntary donations for the majority of our income and each year need to raise more than £5 million from fundraising and £2.5 million from our shops.
For those accessing care and those who have been bereaved, EACH is a lifeline at an unimaginably difficult time.
