More About The Organisation
The Jessie May Trust is a charity that provides nursing care at home for children who have a terminal illness. We provide respite, palliative and terminal nursing care for children who are expected to die by the age of 19.All care is provided free of charge to families, and members of our care team (which includes childrens' nurses) provide care for the child at the family's home. We also offer on-going bereavement support.
The charity receives no statutory funding and so relies totally on voluntary contributions from the community to maintain this vital service.
