Support for Seriously Ill Children and their Families

Sebastian’s Action Trust hospice provides practical, emotional and social support to seriously ill children and their families. Prior to the Covid-19 crisis, these families were already treading a painful and difficult path, knowing that their child was living with a condition that would dramatically shorten their life.

The families supported by the Trust are some of the most vulnerable in society; most went into complete lockdown to shield their immune compromised children from the potentially fatal risk of contracting the virus. A grant of £10,000 provided families with emergency supplies, while they shielded at home to stay safe from the Covid-19 virus.

"We are so grateful for the recognition that comes with this award, which will go towards providing emergency supplies and continuing care for our Hampshire beneficiaries."
