Naomi House and Jacksplace are hospices that support families from seven counties in southern England – Hampshire, Berkshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Surrey, West Sussex and the Isle of Wight. We offer a full palliative care service that includes respite, emergency and end of life care for life-limited and life-threatened children and young adults from birth and into their later years.
Naomi House is a purpose built children’s hospice that provides a homely environment to children and young people with life-limiting conditions. We provide individualised specialist care and much needed respite for the whole family, enabling them to feel refreshed, rested and supported through the good days, difficult days and last days.
Jacksplace is our hospice for 16 years and upwards and has been specifically designed to meet the needs of young adults. It is the only purpose built hospice for teenagers and young adults in our region, and gives life-limited young people the privacy and dignity they crave.
Each year, we need to raise £7 million to run our whole service and deliver our plans. We receive less than 10% of our income from Government. The support we receive from individuals, groups, businesses and trusts means that we can provide care and support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, free of charge, when children, young adults and their families from our region, need it most.
Many people get involved by fundraising for us, whereas other individuals choose to volunteer their time.
The care and support that Naomi House offers is unique in central southern England. The hospices are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and deliver a range of services to help relieve families of the everyday pressures of looking after a child or young person with a life-limiting condition.
