We’re always here for the families that need us… and you can be too.

Your Will is an opportunity to leave future gifts for the people and causes you care most about.

Whether it be a gift for friends, family or to a charity of your choice. It is a gift that leaves a lasting legacy in your memory.

How a gift in your Will could make a difference?

A gift in your Will can make sure that Claire House is always here for families that need us in the future. It is a special way to continue to support the charity that is close to your heart.

We are very grateful for the support you give us today, but if you decide to include a gift for Claire House in your Will, you can support our future too.

These vital gifts already make a huge difference here at Claire House. 1 in 5 children we care for is funded by gifts in Wills.

Every gift can make a positive difference. Although some of the gifts we receive are large ones, the majority are not, and it is what all of these gifts achieve together that makes them so important and so appreciated.

The sad fact is, the number of seriously and terminally ill children needing our services is rising every year and by 2030 we’re expecting to be caring for around 30% more children. So it’s clear we’re going to need even more support from our local community in the years ahead.

“I’ve worked at Claire House Children’s Hospice for 23 years and I’m so proud to be part of a team that provides 24/7 care for seriously ill children and their families from across the region.

“Our job is to make sure families are able to create wonderful experiences and magical memories together – and the support you kindly give plays a big part in that.”

Clare, Palliative Care Nurse Specialist
