About The J’s

The J’s provides palliative nursing and supportive care to young adults between the ages of 16-40 who live in Essex, diagnosed or living with complex or incurable conditions.

Our specialist Care Team can support a young adult and their family throughout illness, death and bereavement, enabling them to retain their independence, in the comfort of their own home and through support groups in the community.

We will also support young people transitioning out of children’s care, perhaps from a children’s hospice or paediatric consultant.

Please note - If you are planning on visiting either one of our hospices or any of patients within the community, please be aware of the latest government advice regarding the recent Coronavirus outbreak. For more information visit the official government website.

Our care can only exist because of you

Our care can only exist because of the support and generosity from the community. Your donation means we can continue to be there for every young adult who needs us.

We feel really lucky that we have The J’s Hospice to support us. Life would be much more difficult without the additional care and respite. Allison, Sophie’s mum
