Our families gratitude

When a family is dealing with a serious or life-limiting condition, it can be challenging to keep on top of day-to-day tasks. Here at Demelza our volunteers help with a range of activities, ensuring that families can focus on taking care of their child and making memories.

One way they offer support is by providing transport to families...families like Zak's who received this support when they needed it most. Every role our volunteers play is much appreciated by our families and makes such an impact.
