What We Do
We provide family accommodation 365 days a year for parents who have ill children in Temple Street and Rotunda Hospitals.
We saw families under severe pressure with a very ill child being separated at a time when they needed each other the most. We saw that when a child is in hospital, no one can cheer them up or excite them as much as their brothers and sisters.
We wanted to nourish the families with home-cooked food to strengthen them. Take-away food will not sustain families long-term so we want to provide a nutritious dinner through volunteer cooks.
Fresh air! We wanted a place for children to play and for families to visit outside of a ward environment.
We wanted a place for children who face long journeys for out-patient appointments to have a place to go before they face the trip back home.
