Local charity gets an early Christmas present

24 Nov Local charity gets an early Christmas present

Haven House Children’s Hospice will begin an exciting period of refurbishments in early 2018 to mark its 15th birthday year.

The hospice in Woodford Green has received funding from the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People, Matchroom Foundation, M & G Foundation, Sir Jules Thorn Charitable Trust, Story of Christmas and the Wolfson Foundation, meaning it can upgrade its care facilities.

In early January work will start to install a bigger and brighter lift to access the bedrooms, the facilities on the first floor will be redesigned and a new kitchen/café area will be added downstairs for families to enjoy.

Whilst these essential building works are taking place, Haven House’s respite and residential services will move to the Holly Private Hospital in Buckhurst Hill for a period of 12 – 16 weeks with the entire care team transferring from Monday 8 January 2018.

All therapeutic support such as physiotherapy, music therapy and yoga therapy will continue to be provided in the Holistic Care Centre at Haven House and will not be affected by the building work.
