Hospice care is...

...about living. It is about making every moment count. It is about creating memories. It transforms lives.

Hospice care is there for anyone, young or old, living with a terminal illness, and their loved ones.

We want to celebrate the amazing and surprising side of hospice care. Join us and share what #hospicecareis… to you.

Hospice care is…the beautiful game

For the children who are cared for by Richard House Children’s Hospice in East London, football means more to them than just kicking a ball.

Playing football means spending time with their families outside of the hospice. It means getting away from their medicines and treatments for a day. It means having fun with their friends. It means that they can be just like everyone else – a kid with a ball.
