Providing specialised care, all year round
Pepper Foundation – 2023 Half Year Update
So far, 2023 has seen challenges and changes at the Pepper Foundation. As is the case for most charities, the cost of living crisis continues to have an effect on our fundraising. However, the Pepper Foundation is a resilient and financially efficient organisation.
There have been a number of changes internally at the charity. We have a new Chair, Robert Breakwell, and two new trustees. We have also had some changes in our fundraising teams.
In the 2022-23 year, the children’s hospice at home service provided compassionate care and support to over 50 families across Bucks and Herts. As part of this service, the Play Specialist role continued to make an incredible difference to the lives of patients and their siblings. The service was also able to run regular Saturday Play Groups at the Rennie Grove facility in St Albans, offering play, creative crafts and party games.

The Pepper Foundation
There are over 49,000 babies, children and young people in the UK who live with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition and the number of referrals are rising year on year. Therefore, the care that is provided by the Children’s Hospice at Home service is vital to help support the families who are affected and living with these conditions every day. The Pepper Foundation raises funds specifically for the children’s nursing service as we believe that patients and families living with complex health needs should be able to enjoy the best quality of life possible, however short that life may be.
