Home away from Home


The hospital Charity's Home away from Home Appeal helps to provide patients and families with free accommodation near to our hospitals, helping to keep families together during difficult times in their lives.

This appeal began with Fisher House, our military home from home, and has continued with Karen's Home from Home and now our new home from home at Heartlands Hospital, which provides accommodation for the families of poorly children being treated at the Neonatal unit. 

For patients and their families, visiting the hospitals can be a stressful experience without the added pressure of trying to find somewhere to stay to be near a loved one. We provide these homes away from home to alleviate that stress, and make visiting the hospital, under what can be very difficult circumstances, as easy as possible.

We are always raising money to fund this accommodation for the families of patients who are being treated at our hospitals. With your help we can help to provide these added extras that comfort and support patients and their families when they need it the most.
