About the company:

Bluebell Wood is a home from home for families facing the toughest of times, with a comfy lounge and beautiful gardens. We’re always cooking up mouth-watering meals and tasty treats in the kitchen for families. There’s also plenty of fun activities for children to try, including soft play, arts and crafts, music therapy and much more.

While they’re staying with us, children have one of our eight bedrooms. If their family is staying too, then parents have their own room.

Every day, we need to raise almost £14,000 to keep our doors open, and only around 15% of our funding comes from government sources. Everything else is paid for by the wonderful work that our supporters do; whether they run, bake, leave a gift in their will or Brave the Shave.

We received an overall rating of ‘Good’ in our most recent inspection undertaken by the Care Quality Commission (CQC); and are proud that we received a rating of ‘Outstanding’ for being a caring service.
