Based in beautiful Thundersley meadowland, Little Havens Hospice, Essex, opened in 1998 as a result of the founders of Fair Havens Hospice identifying a need for children’s hospice care in Essex.
We are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to emergency referrals. We can also offer respite in a child's own home. We couldn't do this without our dedicated multi-disciplinary team of care staff, nurses, doctors and volunteers.

Support and advice is offered throughout the journey of the child’s condition and after they have died through the Bereavement and Family Support Team. Although the charity was founded on a Christian ethos, care and support is given to families of all faiths or none.
It will cost £2.6 million this year to continue these unique and vital services which are entirely free of charge to all families, although donations are always welcomed.
Little Havens Hospice is part of Havens Hospices, which incorporates Fair Havens Hospice for adults in Southend.
