Children's Community Nurses

Our Children's Community Nurses administer medication and perform numerous medical procedures for the Snowdrop child in the comfort of their own home. They give medical advice, teach parents how to manage their child's medicines and treatments, listen to problems and liaise with other health professionals.

Health Care Assistants

Our Health Care Assistants support families by spending time with the Snowdrop child or their siblings out of the house, or playing with them in their own home. This allows parents some respite, or quality time with another child and the children to enjoy a different environment or experience new creative play.

The Snowdrop Counsellors

Our counsellors offer valuable emotional support. They help by befriending and supporting families throughout their child's illness should it be needed. They also provide bereavement support.

Financial Assistance

The charity helps in any way that can relieve parents of the extra financial problems that occur when a child has a life threatening or terminal illness e.g. household equipment and bills, travelling expenses to hospital and so much more.
