At Demelza, we believe every child and young person who has a serious or terminal condition should receive the care and attention they need to live the most fulfilling life they can, and that they and their families have the opportunity to build memories, for however long they have together. 

We’ve been providing this care since 1998 and, through the generosity of others, we can continue to be there for families for years to come.
