You’ll never forget that moment… The diagnosis. Everything stops.
A parent never imagines their child will be diagnosed with a life limiting or life threatening condition. But when the unimaginable happens Acorns steps in. We are here to help families cope at every stage of their child’s life, and beyond.
Our new film ‘Stronger Together’ takes you on the moving journey of the children and families who inspire everything we do here at Acorns.
With your help, we can make sure these remarkable families never face this journey alone.
Together, we are stronger.
... you’ve just been told the child you love will not reach adulthood, or will never walk, talk or be able to feed for themselves. It’s a feeling that’s impossible to put into words.
But who do you turn to? Who really understands what you’re going through?
We know what you are going through and exactly what you need. We know how to make every day special, building memories that will last a lifetime.
At Acorns, families find the care and support they need today, that will give them the strength for tomorrow.
Our work is needed more than ever. There are a growing number of children in our region living longer, with more complex needs. We believe children’s hospice care should be available to every single one of them, wherever and whenever they need it. Only with your support can we be there for families so they don't face this unimaginable journey alone.
We align with the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
