Children's Hospice

A special way of caring

Northern Ireland Children's Hospice is the only service of its type within Northern Ireland caring for children and young people with very complex needs.

There are over 1,300 life-limited children and young people and their families living in Northern Ireland who need the specialist care that only Children's Hospice can provide.

Receiving the diagnosis that your child is life-limited is devastating for families and they need support. At Northern Ireland Children's Hospice we want to make it as easy as possible for local families to access the care and support they need.

We offer high quality care and support to children and young people with life-limiting conditions and their parents and carers. We tailor our service to the needs of each individual. We aim to meet emotional, social and spiritual needs as well as physical ones, enabling children and young people to make the most of their lives within the limitations of their illness.

As leaders in the field of children and young people’s palliative care we also provide support, advice and education to professional colleagues from the multidisciplinary teams involved in supporting this cohort of children and young people with life-limiting conditions. Care is provided in the child's own home and the Children's Hospices in Newtownabbey and Fermanagh.
