LauraLynn Ireland’s Children’s Hospice
LauraLynn Children’s Hospice provides critical end-of-life and respite care for children with life-limiting conditions, and support to their families. With an estimated 4,000 children in Ireland living with a life-limiting condition, our hospice services are urgently needed by many. LauraLynn is the only children’s hospice in the country and needs to raise €3.5 million in 2017 to keep our hospice services running.
Our centre opened in 2001 and caters for 260 children from 0 to 12 years of age living in the Darndale, Belcamp and Mountview areas. Our aim is to provide high quality, safe, affordable and inclusive childcare for all the children and parents in the area whilst promoting physical, emotional, social and educational well being of the children.Visit Website
