Our Aim

We are here to support the whole family


Richard House Children’s Hospice supports children and their families in East London to lead as happy a life as possible when dealing with a life-limiting health condition.

From the moment a child is diagnosed with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, everything changes. And these changes affect the whole family, which is why we feel it is vital to provide not only care to the child, but support to the whole family as well.

We are here to support the whole family, from residential clinical care, to music therapy to enable a child with sensory needs to communicate through sound, to end of life care with pre and post bereavement support for all the family.
