|About||We provide vital resources, support and equipment to seriously ill children and their families at Royal Brompton Hospital. Registered charity no. 1110339|
We provide support to the families by visiting the wards and the intensive care department on daily basis as well as providing support via phone, email and by organising events where families can meet one another outside of the hospital environment.
The following objectives are central to our ongoing strategy.
1. To provide information for parents and families of children undergoing treatment within the Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust.
2. To provide a support network for parents and families of children undergoing treatment within the Brompton and Harefield NHS Trust.
3. To help ensure a comfortable and relaxing environment for families whilst their child is receiving care as an inpatient in the Royal Brompton Hospital.
4. To act as advocates for parents and families of children undergoing treatment within the Brompton and Harefield NHS Trust.
We offer support to families in several ways. Our main projects are highlighted below but please explore this section of our site to find out more information and details about what is currently going on.
Being in hospital is a particularly worrying time for families. The children are undergoing treatments and operations and, along side that, there may be the needs of siblings to juggle or a job to hold down. Parents need some time for themselves as well. We visit families staying at The Royal Brompton to listen to their concerns, give support and tell them more about our charity and how we can help them in the future. We can also put families in touch with others who have been through similar situations.
Most of the children treated by The Royal Brompton and Harefield Trust have chronic conditions and need help and support during their everyday lives at home. Once again, we can put families in touch with others who have similar worries and practical difficulties. We have regular family fun days to bring families together to have fun and a break from the daily routine and to establish friendships that we hope will continue and form the basis of a support network. Brompton Fountain members are invited to join our email list enabling them to post experiences and seek advice and support from other members.
Our support is not just for parents. Brothers and sisters of children with chronic conditions often feel anxious, stressed and left out.
