Spotlight On – East Anglia’s Children Hospices

Could you Help at Home? East Anglian families need you!

Here East Anglia’s Children’s Hopsices care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk, and Suffolk as well as supporting their families. We offer families flexibility and control over where they receive their care and support, including where their child dies – at home, in hospital or at one of three hospices at Milton (Cambridge), Quidenham (Norfolk) and The Treehouse (Ipswich).

We’re recognised as world leaders in our field, with a reputation for excellence and commitment to pioneering development and innovation.

For funding, we rely on voluntary donations and income from our shops – as well as the championing support from our royal patron, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge and similarly we rely on volunteers to help improve the lives of those we wish to help.

EACH thrives on the generous support of our volunteers across all areas of the charity. This Autumn, we’re recruiting enthusiastic volunteers for our Help at Home programme. The families who receive support from EACH would often also benefit from practical support at home. For them, spending time together and making the most of every moment is more important than getting the ironing done or painting the garden fence. And that’s where you come in. The families need volunteers ready to step into their homes and gardens and relieve some of the burden by taking on these household tasks!

The Help at Home programme at EACH is such a valuable part of the support service we offer. Charlotte Redmond, EACH Volunteer Coordinator, says: “I only started working at EACH a couple of months ago and already I’m seeing what an amazing effect the Help at Home programme can have on the lives of families. I’ve no doubt we should be expanding the programme to reach more families who need simple practical support to make their day-to-day lives that little bit easier.”

The only thing you need to get involved is time to give! You can get more information by contacting Charlotte at or on 07889 251385. There are plenty of volunteering opportunities at EACH.
