THE most important people in a child’s life are the parents.
‘Homes from Home’ allow parents the opportunity to be there when a child’s need is greatest - when they are sick.
It provides families the normality of a night’s sleep, a convenient meal, access to showers and laundry.
It also provides the support of those in similar situation - other parents. It means that parents have more time for their child and spend less time worrying about how they will get through the day.
The Sick Children’s Trust makes children better sooner.
