Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) offers care and support to children with life limiting and life threatening illnesses at its three hospices, including Little Harbour in St Austell.

Little Harbour currently supports 107 local children and their families, providing them with short breaks for respite, palliative care & emergency stays as well as end of life care and bereavement support, all free of charge. The hospice has been open for 5 years and is a lifeline to children and families from across Cornwall, Plymouth and the surrounding areas.

There are many ways local businesses can make a difference to those who rely on the care and support provided by CHSW. Whether it’s choosing CHSW as your Charity of the Year, setting up an on-going partnership, donating a gift in kind or putting on a one-off event. There are also fantastic sponsorship opportunities for you to support CHSW’s own events such as the iconic Rainbow Run and Moonlight Memory Walk. You will be helping children, along with their parents and siblings spend quality time making precious memories together as a family.

The charity has many initiatives you can get involved with including its Sponsor a Nurse campaign which directly supports the care provided at its hospices, as well as its £50 Challenge which puts the business acumen of your employees to the test. Volunteering at, or taking part in events whilst representing your business, offers a great way to improve team relationships while also making a positive impact on the local community.

A two way partnership with CHSW, one of the South West’s most respected charities, can add strength to your brand, exposure and profile. Supporting the charity can also provide a way of fulfilling your Corporate Social Responsibility and can bring increased customer loyalty and staff motivation.
