A life-limiting condition shouldn't mean a limited life.

Welcome to Richard House, where joy is our guiding light. We are here to offer unwavering care, boundless support, and an abundance of love to children battling life-limiting health conditions.

We bring joy to children and their families

We’re not just a hospice; we’re a source of hope, a community of love, and a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.

We firmly believe that joy is a universal language that transcends illness and adversity. It’s the laughter of children playing, the smiles of parents finding strength, and the happiness that comes from knowing you’re making a difference.

Will you help care for a child like Musa?

Pay For A Day.

Choose a date that is special or significant to you or your company and donate the amount it costs to support local children’s hospice care for a whole 24 hours.

Sponsor A Nurse.

Without our dedicated, specialist nurses we could not achieve the vital care for children in our local community need.

Sponsor A Room.

Each room is designed to provide a comforting environment, which is especially important for a young child who may have only slept at home or in hospital before.
