Acorns provides care for babies, children and young people, who have life limiting or life threatening conditions. We offer a network of specialist palliative nursing care and support for local families. Caring for a child with complex medical needs can place unimaginable demands on a family, both physically and emotionally. When time is short every moment is precious which is why, as well as providing specialist care, we help families to make lasting memories. Quite simply, we’re here to support families on their journeys, in any way we can. Our package of care is tailored for each individual child to meet their medical, emotional, cultural, religious and spiritual needs.

Disabled people are often poor. Poor people are more likely to become disabled. This is especially true in Africa and Asia, but they don't want hand-outs. They want to be able to earn a living and support themselves. ADD is a charity, which helps them do that.
Action on Elder Abuse (AEA) is a UK-wide specialist organisation working to protect, and prevent the abuse of, vulnerable older adults. We focus exclusively on the issue of elder abuse, not as one issue among many, but as a single focus to our work. For this reason we have extensive expertise that is not available from any other charity or agency. Our freephone UK helpline, (0808) 808 8141, is open Monday-Friday, 9am - 5pm. Should you have any further enquiries in future, please call our main office on, (0208) 835 9280.
