About Acorns Hospice
About This Shop
Acorn’s Children’s Hospice cares for children and young people who have life-limiting and life-threatening conditions across the heart of England. This means they are unlikely to reach adulthood as a cure for their condition cannot be found.
Acorns provide a short break, emergency, and end-of-life care, with a community team to support the family 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
Acorns have helped well over 1,500 families in the last 21 years. We are currently supporting over 500 children and families but there are an estimated 1,600 families in our catchment area who meet our criteria.
We have three 10 bed hospices: Acorns in Birmingham (situated in Selly Oak), Acorns in the Black Country (situated in Walsall), and Acorns for the Three Counties (situated in Worcester). The hospices are designed to be a home-from-home in order to help children enjoy their stay and make the most of every day. Games rooms, soft-play areas, gardens, and lots of toys ensure a happy stay. The hospices have therapeutic facilities such as hydrotherapy pools and multi-sensory rooms. Special adolescent wings ensure privacy for older children.
We urgently need your support to help us fund our care. We cannot change the fact that a child will die but we can provide specialist care for them. Please help Acorns to support local life-limited children to make the most of their short lives and provide support for their families.
