Help us provide specialist care and emotional support for children with serious or terminal conditions and their loved ones, so they can enjoy their time together as a family, for as long as they have.

You're the reason we can keep providing our vital services.

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

"Without Demelza’s care, we would have been broken. Thanks to them, we had three wonderful, challenging, precious months with our son. Demelza helped us to make Mohammed Yahya’s life as rich and as meaningful as possible."
- Mohammed's parents 

As a charity, Demelza is almost entirely dependent on people like you to provide the funds that keep our services going. 

Please ensure every child and family can depend on us when they need us most.

Right now we can only support 1 in 10 families who need our help.

We know Demelza’s care makes an enormous difference to how children, young people and families cope when facing life caring for a child with a serious or terminal condition.

Our nursing team is the heartbeat of Demelza, and with compassion and expert clinical care all wrapped up in one they give children and families the vital support they need.

When time is short, our nurses compassionate care help families make lasting memories, and, when the time comes, they draw upon their clinical expertise to make end of life care as bearable as possible. 

We want to be able to support more families in your local community, but we need your help to do this.
