Helen & Douglas House provides specialist hospice care for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions and those who are seriously and terminally ill (0-18 years). The charity also provides support to the wider family through a person's illness and in bereavement.

Helen & Douglas House works in close partnership with other health and care professionals (in hospital and community settings) to provide age-appropriate palliative care that is tailored to individual needs. We provide nursing and medically-supported stays at the hospice offering specialist palliative and symptom management care for complex and developing conditions, including at end of life. We seek to enable a quality of life in line with individuals' capabilities and desires. 

In-patient care is provided at the hospice located in east Oxford. Patients and families can also be supported in their own home and hospital setting
