Claire House support over 300 families with dying children across Merseyside, Cheshire and North Wales.

But more children are coming to Claire House than ever before – an 84% increase in six years – and we can no longer cope with demand.

With every day that passes, another family struggles on without the help they so desperately need.

Claire House provide a lifeline for families going through the toughest of times, allowing them to make memories that will last a lifetime.

Your support can help us to increase the care we offer families in their homes and help more children at our hospice.

We want to be there whenever and wherever families need help.

Become a regular giver

Pledging a regular gift to Claire House Children’s Hospice will mean we can support even more dying children. With every day that passes, another family struggles on without the help they so desperately need. The hospice is currently only reaching one in two of the children it could be. Your regular donation can help us reach every dying child.

Dying children urgently need your help!
