Living with life limiting illness is hard on everyone. We support carers and family members in the home, in the community and in the Hospice. We help people of all ages, including children, through individual, family and group activities.

​Support for carers and family

Helping you stay well

Caring for someone who is seriously ill can be stressful and tiring. We know that time is precious. Our dietician can give you some quick tips about eating well and we can give you a CD with simple techniques to help you relax. Our social workers can help you to cope with the emotional impact of your loved one’s illness on you and other members of the family.

There is also further support available for carers in Surrey – you can find out more below.

Support for children, young people and families

When dealing with stress and loss, children and young people may have different needs to adults. So we provide support especially for them. Our specialist social workers offer advice for children, young people and parents in individual and family sessions. There’s no time limit – we’ll be here for as long as you need us. We can also help school staff or other professionals to offer support.

Currently meetings are taking place via Zoom – call Helen Shepherd on 07918 747597 or email on for more information about joining a session.

Dovetail is a chance for bereaved children, young people and adults to take part in creative activities, chat, listen and support each other.
