82 Bellevue Road
Isle of Wight
We work to support recently bereaved families where a child has died and help families who have children with life limiting disabilities and terminal illnesses on the Isle of Wight. We try to remain as flexible as possible in how we help the families who need it, as we understand that every family, child and circumstance are all different and personal to them. The majority of our financial support goes toward helping families with weekly financial assistance when undergoing mainland treatment under our Crisis Aid programme. We also work to support the local hospital, other organisations and the community teams in improving facilities and services where possible for families.
To ensure we help only families that truly need it, we work closely with the Children’s Community Nursing Team and other departments at St Mary’s Hospital on the Isle of Wight, where we get the majority of our referrals. We also work closely with other local and national charities, networking to ensure that families get the best overall care package that is possible for their circumstances.
