We need a new hospice to meet the demand for our services in Norfolk.
Our Quidenham hospice is one of the oldest in the UK and has been an incredible home-from-home to many families for more than 20 years.
However the hospice was converted from an old country house and is extremely restricted in its facilities and development. The demand on our services continues to increase and the care for young people over the last decade has become far more complicated – we are rapidly outgrowing the constraints of the building.
We have planning permission for a new hospice – the nook – on a five acre site in the parish for Framingham Earl, five miles south of Norwich and alongside the communities of Poringland and Framingham Pigot.
If we raise the funds we need, the nook will be on an idyllic woodland plot, creating a wonderful tranquil setting for children, young people and families. It will also be better positioned in the county, within a thriving local community and won’t be isolated from services, hospitals and road networks.
