How we can help

Adapting to caring for your child with a life-limiting condition can be difficult, isolating and life-changing. We are here to help.

Here to help you every step of the way

At Charlie House, we deliver inclusive and accessible activities and projects to enable families to gain confidence, engage socially, make memories together, meet others in similar situations and share information.

We can help you to access information relevant to your circumstances and provide emotional or practical support when you need it most.
