The Jessie May Trust

Jessie May aims to ensure terminally ill children receive the very best specialist palliative nursing care within the familiar surroundings of their own home. Unlike the more traditional hospice model where a family would have to physically travel to a hospice setting, Jessie May nurses provide free professional nursing care at home. Our services support the whole family and includes; nursing care, respite visits, advice and support, advocacy, specialist end of life care and bereavement support.
