Acorns Children's Hospice

Providing care, support, fun and laughter for children with life limiting or life threatening conditions and their families.

Did you know...

In the last year, we have cared for 876 children and supported 1,097 families, including those who are bereaved.

It costs almost £10million a year to run our care services in the hospices and community. We rely heavily on the generosity of the general public to fund the majority of our activities.

What makes Acorns Children's Hospice different

We are the only children’s hospice covering the West Midlands, Black Country and Three Counties regions. We provide a home-from-home environment where children can take part in a variety of fun and therapeutic activities, from arts and crafts sessions to hydrotherapy. Children visit our 3 hospices for respite, short breaks and end of life care.

We are there to help families feel equipped to cope at every stage of their child’s life, with dedicated teams offering psychological, emotional and practical support. We have a team of health and social care professionals who provide a range of services including bereavement support and support groups for the whole family including grandparents and siblings.
