Chestnut Tree House cares for around 300 children and young people with life-shortening conditions across Sussex and South East Hampshire, as well as around 200 bereaved families.
Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice cares about making every Now count.
From providing a few hours respite from the round-the-clock responsibilities of caring for a sick child to supporting families through some of their toughest moments, Chestnut Tree House provides care at their purpose-built hospice near Arundel and in families’ own homes across the county.
Now is precious moments that give a lifetime of memories, the chance to be a parent for a few hours, rather than a carer, and the opportunity for kids to just be kids, to do all the things that kids their age should do. Now is all about exploring, creating, enjoying and treasuring. And for supporters it’s all about the high of doing something important, something that they didn’t think they could do. It’s about making their own memories whilst making a difference.
It costs over £3.9 million every year to provide these specialist care services and less than 6% of that comes from central Government. All care is offered to families free of charge, so Chestnut Tree House relies heavily on the generosity of our Brighton Marathon runners.
For today. For tomorrow. For the Now.
