Chestnut Tree House is the only children’s hospice in Sussex and cares for children and young adults from 0-19 years of age with progressive life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses from all over the county.
Completed in 2003, the hospice provides a ‘home from home’ environment with 10 children’s bedrooms plus family rooms, wet and dry play area, computer and music rooms, multi sensory room and hydrotherapy pool, all set in beautiful gardens.
Chestnut Tree House has the potential to care for as many as 400 families and offers support for the whole family including psychological support, care in bereavement therapy, end of life and respite care and sibling support.
The hospice will cost approximately £1.25 million per year to run. Families are not charged for their care and the hospice receives no government funding at all, so it relies completely on the generosity, help and support of the people of Sussex.
