The Donna Louise provides respite and end of life care for children with life-limiting conditions, as well as support for the whole family.

The Hospice is a warm and caring place where children and families can truly feel at home. Every child is recognised as an individual with their own needs, likes and dislikes, strengths and abilities. Our specialist staff are able to see beyond their illness and disabilities to see the young person inside and everything they do centres around making the most of the time that the children spend with us.

In 2016, we announced that we are expanding our services to include care and support for our children once they reach the age of 19, and into early adulthood. Prior to this, our young people were discharged from our services on their 19th birthday, and currently no appropriate services exist in our region to support them in adulthood.

Plans are currently underway to build a new facility to support the needs of our young adults and their families and we have made a committment to be there for them until they no longer need us. 

We currently care for over 200 families in Staffordshire and Cheshire. We need to raise £3.5 million every year to continue to provide this vital service. With the introduction of the young adult service, this amount will rise to £4.5 million by 2019.

We are truly grateful to everyone who supports The Donna Louise - Every penny goes a long way - thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
