East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice (EACH) supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. We provide care and support wherever the family wishes – in families’ own homes, in hospital or at one of our hospices in Ipswich, Milton and Quidenham. We are a registered charity (no. 1069284) and this year need to raise £4 million in donations to deliver our services. This amounts to £11,000 a day, every day of the year.

They support children and their families with the challenges that having a life-threatening condition can often bring. Services may be provided in the family home, the community or the hospice. The range of services include:

  • Day care in the family home or hospice, or both
  • Overnight breaks in the hospice
  • Support for parents, siblings, grandparents and others close to the child
  • 24 hour telephone support and advice
  • Therapies – music, physio, occupational and specialist play
  • Family information service
  • End of life care in the family home or the hospice depending on family preference
  • Annual Memory Days and ongoing support for bereaved families
