At Demelza, we believe our people are our greatest asset.

From our hospices to our shops, we have a team of fantastic people who all make Demelza a great place to work. We couldn’t do the work we do, or have the impact on the lives of children and young people like we do, without our people.

If you would like to help us make a difference, we would love to hear from you.

Fiercely committed to quality

The families and children we help, and our supporters, deserve nothing but excellence. Each one of us has a vital role to play in providing unique care and support and we always strive to deliver a brilliant service.

By working and improving together, we can give even more families a chance to enjoy time as a family, for as long as they have.

Human is our nature

Because we see the person and not the condition, we give each baby, child and family member a service that fits them as an individual. We’re all human, and through empathy and understanding, we can provide essential care as unique as the person its designed for.

Our different roles, skills and experiences make us stronger. We value and respect everyone who is part of our story, from the families we help, to the supporters and volunteers who keep us going, to each member of staff.
