Demelza is an organisation providing hospice care for hundreds of children with life-limiting illnesses and their families across Kent, East Sussex and South East London.

Demelza has two hospices, one in Eltham, Greenwich and one in Sittingbourne, Kent as well as a community nursing team based in East Sussex.

The charity, which has been running since 1998, offers respite, symptom control, end-of-life care and bereavement support for families with children who are either life limited or suffer from conditions which mean they need a lot of specialist care. 

Facilities include a multi-sensory room, soft play area, a hydrotherapy pool, and the Inclusion Zone for young adults. 

Demelza Kent is a 10 bedded hospice in Sittingbourne, providing respite, symptom control, end-of-life care and bereavement support.

Demelza South East London offers similar facilities to Sittingbourne but in a six bedded unit in the heart of Eltham.

Demelza Community is a nursing team offering a hospice-at-home service for children across East Sussex, South East London and parts of West Kent. Specialist children’s nurses go directly into the family home to provide care, crisis intervention, an on-call service and respite.

Our motto is ‘adding life to days when days cannot be added to life’. 

At the end of the child's illness, Demelza offers a comprehensive service of support using a bereavement suite which enables a family to let go and say goodbye at their own pace.

Demelza organise support groups for different ages for the siblings of a sick child, so that their differing needs can be catered for.

Demelza also have other family support groups, for example, a mother's group and a grandparents'group.

Other ways of getting involved in the charity are through volunteering, signing up to the lottery or supporting our charity shops across the area.
