Forget Me Not Children's Hospice

Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice provides much needed care and support to children and their families with life shortening conditions across West Yorkshire.

Our mission is to say “yes” to children and families. It is not for them to fit to our service, but for us to deliver the care and support that works best for them.

Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice is about making precious memories for our children and families that will stay with them forever.

Founded 1998

  • Mission statement

    Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice isn't your average hospice! A proportion of our support is delivered in the homes of our children and families, through our “Hospice at Home” service. Our highly qualified and dedicated Care Team take as many aspects of our care and support directly to our families, so that they can remain in their own comfortable and familiar surroundings. This ensures that the lives of siblings and other family members are kept as normal as possible.

    Our families also come to us for respite and care in our beautiful hospice, to be looked after by our team. Parents and siblings can take a break from being primary carers and get a full night’s sleep.

    Our children can access hydrotherapy, communicate with their families through our state of the art technology mediums, spend precious fun time in our beautiful gardens and take part in a range of activities that are adapted so that everyone can take part, regardless of their conditions.

    Over the past 3 years we have worked on developing our perinatal service, in 2016 it was reported that 98% of neonatal babies with palliative care needs pass away in hospitals. These babies and their families miss the opportunity of care in a more homely environment.

    Our service will enable the family to spend precious time with their baby at home or in the homely hospice setting, as opposed to the more clinical hospital environment.
