Our services

Helping those who may not live a long life, to live a full life.

Demelza provides specialist care and emotional support for children with terminal conditions and their loved ones, so they can enjoy time together as family, for as long as they have. 

There is no formula, everybody’s journey is unique.

Demelza gives you choice and control of how your child is cared for, through support in our hospices, at home or in school.

Family stories

Caring for families in Kent, East Sussex & South East London


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

An extraordinary place for incredible families

For every parent, the health and happiness of their children is the single most important thing in the world. But the reality is any child could be born with or develop a terminal condition.

The unique support we give to families comes at a price, and at present we’re only reaching 20 per cent of the children that we could help.

As a charity, we’re almost entirely dependent on people like you to provide the funds that keep our specialist services going.

Did you know?

Demelza must raise over £10.5 million every year to be able to provide vital care to families across the south east of England.
