How We Can Help

Rebecca House is a purpose built facility within our building that provides respite, palliative and end of life care for children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions from birth to 18 years. 

The care we provide for the children who stay with us is all about supporting them throughout their illness. Our care includes short-term respite stays, which may be for weekly sessions or block care depending on the needs of the family which may include care to assist with symptom and pain management or end of life care.

Our multi-disciplinary team works together to ensure that needs are assessed and reviewed and ensure that the care provided is well co-ordinated, flexible and personal to each individual. We offer a safe haven and a home from home environment in which physical, emotional, recreational and spiritual care is offered and where children are able to relax and have fun.

Normal opening hours 

We provide care six days a week between the hours of 8am and 8pm and overnight care on a request basis, shift times vary and are dependent on requests of parents and families. When providing end of life care we will open 24hours to support the child and family throughout the duration of their stay.

 Our Commitments

  • To continuously review and develop our services for children and young people, particularly during their transition from children's to adult care
  • To offer the highest possible standard of care and support to each child and their family to enable them to cope with their illness and lead as full and normal life as possible
  • To provide care and activities of interest that meet each child’s needs in a relaxed warm, homely environment, whilst facilitating access to specialist knowledge
  • To recognise the uniqueness of each child with their own lifestyle and needs
  • To ensure that each child and their family is kept informed of their diagnosis/prognosis if they so wish; enabling them to make realistic choices and plan for their future
  • To continue to invest to improve the physical environment for our children and their families
