With your help together we will create and run family accommodation
facilities in children’s hospitals and hospices. For any parent with a sick child, it is comforting to know there is somewhere to stay close to their child. A child’s first response when faced with traumatic treatment is to seek comfort from their parents and family. The simple act of being in hospital can compound the stress of illness and without the close support of their family, their physical recovery can be adversely affected. Parents are actively encouraged to participate in their child’s care, and, in turn we must provide not just for the needs of the patients but also of the parents and in some cases the whole family. Family accommodation is an invaluable resource to support families with sick children and create a home from home environment
