Create a Butterfly Tribute

A Butterfly Tribute can be set up in memory of a loved one to benefit Helen & Douglas House. They are a wonderful way of supporting the charity and ensuring that the memory of your child, family member or friend lives on after they have gone.

Why we need your help

Why we need your help
It costs over £5 million a year to run the two hospice houses and we are dependent on voluntary contributions for over 80% of this. This means we rely almost entirely on the generosity of people in the community to be able to provide sustainable, specialist care for the children and young adults who visit us and support for their families. Please help us to be here for families, now and in the future.

Grief Resources

Welcome to our Grief Resources area designed to help you find the best possible information and support following bereavement.

It is divided into a number of different sections for ease of reference including specific information on funerals, bereavement reading, support organisations and online support. Please just click on any of the sections below to find out more:

Please do let us know if you have any comments or suggestions regarding our Grief Resources area as we are always keen to update and improve this resource.

Be a Supporter

Be a Supporter

The support we offer families caring for children and young adults with life - shortening conditions, is only possible with the help we receive from you.

Donating to your Tribute

Supporting us at your special occasion or event is a rewarding and thoughtful way to help. Why not ask guests to make a Tribute donation instead of a gift at your birthday or wedding anniversary, or perhaps in lieu of flowers at a funeral.
