About Little Havens

Little Havens is a hospice set in beautiful meadowland in Rayleigh, Essex.

We care for children and young people up to the age of 19 from Essex and the London surrounding boroughs who have been diagnosed with a complex or incurable condition.

We offer overnight respite breaks, emergency stays, symptom management and care at the end of a child’s life. There are also ‘Day Stay’ sessions and the opportunity to attend specific groups and activities relevant to you and your child’s needs.

Support is also offered to the child’s family.

We don’t charge a penny for our care

And that’s only possible because of donations made by people like you. Your donation means we can continue 'Making every day count' for every baby, child and teenager who needs us.
