When a family has been told that there's no cure for their loved one's illness and all that can be done is to make life comfortable, Havens Hospices can help.
Fair Havens Hospice, Little Havens Hospice and The J's focus on the individual needs of the adults, young adults and children we care for, 'Making every day count' for those with life-limiting illnesses, and their families.
We're the only place in the area wholly dedicated to looking after those with an illness which could shorten their life.
Our hospices help by controlling pain and medication, offering short respite breaks and caring for each child and patient at the end of their lives.
Our Volunteers form an integral part of every aspect of our care across Havens Hospices which is often described by those we care for as "amazing."
Our Board of Trustees are also volunteers. They are responsible for the governance of Havens Hospices, overseeing the management and administration of the organisation. In short, they hold overall legal responsibility for the charity. You can find out who our Trustees are for Havens Hospices and The J’s Hospice on the Charity Commission website.
Everyone matters at Havens Hospices; we care not just for patients but their families friends and neighbours too. All are welcome.
We're a registered charity, not part of the NHS, and receive limited government funding. Our hospices can only exist because of the support and generosity of the community.
You can find out more about our care for children, adults and young adults, or make a referral, on this website.

Together, we're 'Making every day count' for seriously ill adults, children and their families.
