Learn more about us

Our aim is to provide family led care for children with life-shortening conditions. It is a place where children, young people and their families can come to stay from time to time along their journey and find support, rest and practical help.

Our history

The vision of the hospice became a reality thanks to the dedication of the Venerable Richard M C Seed, Archdeacon of York, and to the generosity of thousands of people who raised money.

Our trustees

We are managed by a Board of Trustees who are governed by a memorandum and articles of association.
