A Very Special Project

Hospice rebuild

In our most significant service improvement project ever, we are conducting a complete rebuild of our children’s hospice.

Thanks to our construction partner, Plan Group, the state-of-the-art facility is coming together, and we are looking forward to welcoming children and families to the Sister Margaret Noone Hospice at Very Special Kids House in September. You can see a sneak peak in the video below.

Chief Executive Officer, Michael Wasley, said the organisation has spent more than three years researching what makes the world’s best hospice.

“The new hospice will be world-class with state-of-the-art and best practice clinical facilities to better support children of every age, size, nationality and functional capability. It will offer more specialised services for children as well as a semi-private space for adolescents to better respect their maturity and desire for independence. There will also be a dedicated area to allow for greater privacy and space to support a family’s final wishes for their child.”

“If the world was a fairer place, no child would be born with a life-limiting condition. Our families and children are facing some of the greatest challenges in life, but they are strong, resilient and inspirational to us. It’s now time to get it built and deliver our promise of building the world’s best children’s hospice,” he said.
