How your money helps

A Jessie May Nurses costs £30,000 a year, and every penny we get helps our Jessie May Nurses to continue to support our children and families across the South West with a FREE at home care service. Our Jessie May nurses provide:

  • Regular, three-hour respite visits, during which a Jessie May nurse takes over sole care of the terminally ill children, allowing parents and siblings a much-needed break. Our nurses are trained to administer medication and carry our other medical procedures, offer independent time for the terminally ill child to play and relax and provide practical and emotional support for parents.
  • Family support events, to reduce isolation and improve the quality of life for the whole family. We provide free respite activities to give children a range of experiences that others take for granted.
  • End of life care, highly intensive, specialist care at the end of a child’s life, to empower families to give their child the life and death they want for them in the comfort of their own home.
  • Bereavement support is offered to parents from the moment a child is accepted onto the Jessie May caseload, we provide emotional support alongside respite visits and our bereavement support continues for up to five years after a child has died.

Help us to fund a Jessie May Nurse today, and help us to continue supporting families across the South West.
