We are extremely proud to announce we have been chosen as Swiss Re charity partner for 2018-2019.
The Swiss Re Group is a leading wholesale provider of reinsurance, insurance and other insurance-based forms of risk transfer. Dealing directly and working through brokers, its global client base consists of insurance companies, mid-to-large-sized corporations and public sector clients.
From standard products to tailor-made coverage across all lines of business, Swiss Re deploys its capital strength, expertise and innovation power to enable the risk-taking upon which growth and progress depends.
We are thoroughly looking forward to and extremely excited about the launch of this new partnership, working together and #TakingCareHome in line with our strategy to reach more children, at home, across Kent and South East London, just as we already do in East Sussex.
Taking care to the homes of families across Kent and South East London will give more choice to families as to where and when they receive their care. The impact will bring real value to them and to society and our communities at large. This is tailored, individual care in the home, out in the community, in schools or within our hospice sites.
With Swiss Re’s support Demelza can fund expert Care Assistants, essential sensory, art and play materials and training for nurses. It will also allow us to work in partnership with other health and social care providers. Demelza plans to target hospitals and doctors to educate them about our hospice care so they signpost to us and we increase referrals.

Swiss Re’s UK CEO, Frank O’Neill says:
Demelza Hospice Care for Children is our new charity partner for 2018 and 2019. It is an incredible cause, providing a support system to seriously and terminally ill children and their families.
Swiss Re will be doing everything we can over the next two years to learn more about what children’s palliative care involves and we intend to get stuck in, raise money, give our time and ultimately have some fun as we support the incredible care Demelza provides for their children and families.
I am extremely proud we are supporting a charity like Demelza and I know all our efforts will make a real difference to the children and their families’ lives.
