It’s About Life.


Family stories

Caring for thousands of families across the south east since 1998.

Demelza is here to help you and your family cope with the fear, challenges and complexities of having a seriously ill child - from diagnosis, during day to day family life, times of crisis and through bereavement.

An extraordinary place for incredible families

Get involved


Go the extra mile and be a part of #TeamDemelza to ensure we can continue to help families build precious memories together when time is short.
