About Claire House Children’s Hospice 

Claire House Children’s Hospice helps seriously and terminally ill children make the most of the time they have, however long or short that may be. They provide specialist nursing and end of life care within the hospice or at home, as well as emotional support. Claire House helps families in Chester and the surrounding areas through some of the toughest times of their lives.

But it’s about more than just care. Claire House is a place for children to relax and enjoy themselves, whatever their age. They can have fun in the multi-sensory room, art room, hydrotherapy pool and Jacuzzi, while teenagers and young adults can unwind in a separate wing complete with sound system and games consoles. Whilst their children are having fun, Mum and Dad get the chance to enjoy some much-needed time off together or with their other children. Brothers and sisters can join in with regular trips and events organised just for them, to ensure that they feel as valued as their siblings.

Claire House provide bereavement support for the whole family, memory making sessions for siblings and ‘Perfect Charms’ keepsakes made from a child’s finger prints that last a lifetime. Their support continues for as long as a family needs it.

By joining the Claire House team, you’ll be helping to provide specialist medical care at the same time as making sure Mum gets to cuddle her child for as long as she possibly can; you’ll help Dad make bath time as much fun as it’s always been, and you’ll be giving brothers and sisters the chance to laugh and play together. 

With every day that passes another family struggles on without the help they so desperately need. So please consider running for Claire House - your support can make all the difference.
