The Charity plans to open a property that will offer families with children suffering from life limiting medical conditions -short break holidays. where the family, as a unit, can spend time together, rather than being in the home or hospital environment. 'A Special Place for Special Children'
It ran from 12:00 AM, 1 February 2013 to 12:00 AM, 1 June 2013
Registered Charity in England and Wales (1121426)
For many families the only route to some form of family-time together, outside of the hospital, respite environments is at home, which due to the medical requirements of the sick child are sometimes not conducive to having a normal family life. It puts strain on the inter-family relationships and on other siblings.Ellie's Haven
By putting Ellie's Haven into the health support mix, in particular in South East Cornwall we will add another dimension to a limited pool of resources for families in Cornwall and Devon. We will provide free short breaks for needy families, all year round. The gap in the available market has been identified by the founders of the Charity, Julie And Nigel Libby, in consultation with medical expertise provided by Derriford Hospital's Paediatrics Dept and support organisations.
