Sadly, many of the children Charlie House supports are likely to live short lives. Our Star Room is a dedicated and very private space for families to spend precious time together after a child has died. This is a truly special place where they can treasure memories, invite visitors, be alone and take the time they may need to begin the grieving process.
Families will have the choice to move their child from home, hospital or within the centre to the Star Room. Our specialist support team will be there with them every step of the way, providing them with bereavement support for as long they need. The Star Room has an adjacent lounge and access to a walled garden for privacy during an incredibly difficult time.
In 2022, we launched the ‘Buy a Brick’ campaign which aims to raise £1million for the Big Build Appeal - a necessary initiative to develop a specialist support facility in Aberdeen for babies, children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families.
