Homepage

The Sussex Snowdrop Trust was founded in 1993 to provide nursing care at home for children with a life threatening or terminal illnesses.

Nowadays children are at home very quickly after their operations, and some travel daily to hospital for treatments such as Radiotherapy. Children with complex needs are cared for at home by their parents.  They need the vital support of a qualified children's Pediatric nurse to enable them to cope with the day to day demands of looking after a very sick child.

Snowdrop provides nursing care at home for local children, (0 to 19 year olds), who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening or terminal illness, such as leukaemia, cancer or cystic fibrosis.

The Snowdrop nurses also provide end of life care within the comfort, reassurance and familiarity of home.  Since Snowdrop was founded, nearly all 'Snowdrop' children, who have become terminally ill, have been at home during this very sad time.
