Family stories

We believe every family with a seriously ill child in hospital should be able to stay together. Here you can read inspiring, first-hand accounts from families who have stayed in one of our ‘Homes from Home’.

The worry doesn’t ever go when your baby is ill in hospital

Rachel and Sal were given a place to stay at Chestnut House when their son, Aydin, was born not breathing and needed weeks of intensive care in Cambridge. Since staying with us, their friends and family have raised over £2,000 to thank us for giving them a 'Home from Home'.
