Hope House Children's Hospices provide care and support to terminally ill children and their families across Shropshire, Mid Wales, Cheshire and North Wales through their two hospices - Hope House in Oswestry and Ty Gobaith in Conwy. Their support includes terminal and respite care, both at the hospices and in the child's own home, and counselling for the whole family for as long as is required. Bereavement counselling is also extended to any family in the community that has lost a child through illness or accident, or where children have lost a parent in traumatic circumstances. Their services cost £4 million a year to run and just one month's funding is provided by the Government - the rest of the running costs are met by fundraising and donations.
