|Naomi House Children's Hospice|
Naomi House and Jacksplace are hospices for children and young people. The hospices are based in Winchester, Hampshire, England. It is also known as The Wessex Children's Hospice Trust, (No.1002832). Naomi House and Jacksplace provide care to children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. The care and support that Naomi House offers is unique in central southern England. The hospices are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and deliver a range of services to help relieve families of the everyday pressures of looking after a child or young person with a life-limiting condition. They offer respite care, emergency support, a hospice at home service and family support.
The hospices provide palliative care to young people and their families in communities across seven counties - Berkshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Surrey, West Sussex and Wiltshire.
Naomi House cares for children up to the age of 16, and Jacksplace offers care for young people aged 16 or over. Each hospice is purpose-built and offers an appropriate, engaging environment for each age group.
They need to raise £7 million a year to run the whole service and deliver their plans. They get less than 20% of their charitable expenditure from statutory sources, the remaining amount is raised and donated by individuals, groups and businesses. Many people get involved by organizing or taking part in fundraising events  whereas other individuals choose to volunteer their time.
There are ten children's bedrooms and five family bedrooms at Naomi House and seven bedrooms and family accommodation available at Jacksplace. There are facilities such as music therapy, computers, art and play rooms and multi-sensory and hydrotherapy suites at both hospices.
Amongst numerous fundraising events each year, The Clarendon Way Walk is the annual flagship event that sees hundreds of supporters walk 26 miles along the Clarendon Way, between Winchester and Salisbury Cathedrals.
