About Bluebell Wood
At Bluebell Wood, we care for children with a range of complex medical conditions; all of which are life-threatening or life-shortening. We support children and families from across South Yorkshire, North East Derbyshire, North Nottinghamshire and parts of North Lincolnshire.
We care for children and young adults whose lives are sadly just too short, both in their own homes and at our hospice in North Anston. We believe that every family deserves to make magical memories with their child, whether they have years, months, weeks or days together.
Bluebell Wood is a home from home for families facing the toughest of times, with a comfy lounge and beautiful gardens. We’re always cooking up mouth-watering meals and tasty treats in the kitchen for families. There’s also plenty of fun activities for children to try, including soft play, arts and crafts, music therapy and much more.
While they’re staying with us, children have one of our eight bedrooms. If their family is staying too, then parents have their own room. Every day, we need to raise £11,000 to keep our doors open, and only around 10% of our funding is from the government.
Everything else is paid for by the wonderful fundraising efforts of our supporters; whether they run, bake or even brave the shave.
