CHSW - Bubble Rush
CHSW is a region-wide charity supporting children and families from across the south west through their three hospices; Little Bridge House in Barnstaple, Charlton Farm near Bristol and Little Harbour in St Austell, Cornwall. Little Harbour offers short breaks, respite, palliative care, end of life care and bereavement support to children from across Cornwall and Plymouth and is the only service providing this type of care available to families in the area. Children who use the hospice suffer with life limiting or life threatening illnesses, however when they visit Little Harbour for short stays, along with their parents and siblings, children are looked after on a one to one basis by the multi-disciplinary Care Team and siblings are supported by the Sibling Team giving parents the chance to relax and simply enjoy their time together as a family.
Little Harbour is currently supporting around 100 children & their families and around 20 bereaved families. Families can receive support from the charity from the moment of diagnosis through to bereavement and beyond.
CHSW receives very limited guaranteed government funding each year and Little Harbour alone costs around £3million a year to run, therefore donations from the local community are incredibly important to ensure the safeguarding of the services to families going through unimaginable circumstances.
CHSW’s strapline is ‘Making the most of short and precious lives’ and that is what the charity aims to do every day, allowing parents precious time with their children and for special memories to be made all together as a family in comfortable and homely surroundings.
