Richard House Children's Hospice based in East London, provides palliative care to children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions across London.
Opened in 2000, Richard House was London’s first children’s hospice. Today we support more than 300 families from Newham, Barking, Dagenham, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest, Hackney, Redbridge, Haringey, Islington, Ilford, Camden and into South Essex.
From the moment a child is diagnosed with a life-limiting, life-threatening or complex health condition everything changes. These changes affect the whole family, which is why we feel it is vital not only to provide care to the child but to support the whole family and to help families choose when, where and how they receive care.
Our vision is for communities to have space where they can journey together to create memories of living and dying.
Richard House is located on the edge of the Docklands in Beckton, close to London City Airport and Canary Wharf. Being in Zone 3, we are close enough to the city for easy access, but we are far enough that you can enjoy the peace and tranquility of our award winning gardens. Our nearest station is the Royal Albert DLR and there are a number of buses which run close by which connect us to Canning Town and East Ham. We also have free car parking available within the grounds.
Our network of six shops are located in east London and Essex, in the heart of our service area.
