We’re supporting a charity which provides hospice care for children and families
Astra Security has continued its support of Children’s Hospice South West, as part of its ongoing commitment to charities and communities in the local area.
Children’s Hospice South West provides valuable hospice care for children with life-limiting conditions and their whole family. They operate three hospices: Little Bridge House in North Devon, Charlton Farm in North Somerset, and Little Harbour in mid Cornwall.
The Charity is the only children’s hospice in the South West. It provides a range of services including short breaks, specialist play, music therapy, activities for siblings, palliative and emergency care, bereavement support and specialist medical care – all available 24/7, 365 days a year.
Paul Beet, Managing Director at Astra Security Ltd said:
“The work that this charity does is amazing. They provide vital care and help when families need it most. We’re proud to continue our support.”
Amanda Gallagher, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser at CHSW said:
“We are incredibly grateful to Astra Security for their support of Children’s Hospice South West. The last two years have brought new and often terrifying challenges to families caring for children with life-limiting conditions, many of whom have seen care packages fall away and their wider support networks disappear because of the pandemic. Our care teams have had to adapt to ensure Covid-safe support wherever and whenever families need it most, including in our three children’s hospices in Devon, Somerset, and Cornwall, and for the first time ever, in families’ own homes. But we can only continue to be here thanks to the generous support of individuals and businesses like Astra Security.”
Supporting charities and local communities is an important part of the ethos at Astra Security, who understand the importance of giving something back. As a result, we support several charitable and fundraising initiatives across the region.
