Young adults


More and more young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions are living into adulthood and therefore making the move from childhood and children’s services to adulthood and adult services. This is what we refer to as ‘transition’.

At Richard House we aim to help make this transition as smooth as possible, through the transition programme that we run with St Joseph’s Hospice, an adults’ hospice in Hackney.

The transition programme

We know growing up is hard enough, but especially for young people with life limiting conditions.

We want everyone to be fully prepared for the  changes from children’s to adult palliative care, so no-one is left behind.

At Richard House Children’s Hospice, we use our nursing, social work and youth work expertise to help young people, their families and professionals to navigate the incredibly complex education, health and social care systems when using and moving on from children’s hospice facilities.
