Forget Me Not Children's Hospice

Forget Me Not Children's Hospice offers care and support to children with life shortening conditions and their families, across Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield

Founded 1998

  • Mission statement

    Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice supports 150 children and their families, across Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield, through its hospice at home service and state of the art hospice Russell House in Huddersfield.

    In December 2012, Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice opened the doors of its state of the art building – Russell House, to the families and children who use the charities services. Offering care within Russell House will from now on run side by side by with the Hospice at Home service.

    With just 6% of funding coming from the government the charity must raise over £3. 8m each year to ensure it is able to give the children and families the support they need.

    There are more than 700 children and families in the Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield area who may need the care support from the Hospice at Home service or at the Hospice, Russell House. Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice needs to build awareness to enable it to reach out to these families

    As part of the charity’s care service we offer children’s play, family support, bereavement support, sibling support and complementary therapy to all of our children and families
