The Pepper Foundation is a small charity raising money to help fund children’s hospice at home nursing care in Bucks and Herts. The funds we raise, support nurses providing specialist paediatric care for children with life limiting or life-threatening conditions. Care is provided free of charge in patients own homes and is unique in this area as it is available 24 hours a day, all year round.
The Children’s Hospice at Home nursing team and the service they provide is managed by Rennie Grove Hospice Care, and as well as nursing care for the children, they offer practical advice for parents and emotional support for siblings and other family members. In giving children the choice to be cared for at home, surrounded by the people and things they love, the aim is to ensure their lives are as happy and comfortable as possible.
The Pepper Foundation raises funds specifically for the children’s nursing service as we believe that patients and families living with complex health needs should be able to enjoy the best quality of life possible, however short that life may be.
