Being a House Manager for The Sick Children’s Trust is a very rewarding job. Every day I meet new family members and everyone has their own stories and difficulties that they’re going through. I really enjoy being the key support that we give to the families who stay with us. Making them feel at home and giving them one less thing to worry about is so important at a time when they need us most.

Imtiaz Pathan,
House Manager at Stevenson House, London

“I am constantly amazed by our supporters and their resilience and determination to give back in the face of adversity. Many of our supporters are individuals who have experienced staying in one of our ‘Homes from Home’ and they can’t do enough to fundraise for us and raise awareness of our vital work. This puts a smile on my face every day.”
