About us

For families. Community-based. Child-focused. Holistic support.

A family-focused children’s hospice in Buckinghamshire

Founded in 2018, Forever Colours is a family focused, community-based children’s hospice in Buckinghamshire.

Our objective is to support the emotional and physical wellbeing of babies, children, and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions or profound and multiple learning disabilities.

Our purpose is to provide relief, treatment and care for children from birth to 18 years of age. We also aim to support parents, carers, and families, and provide relief to those who suffer the loss of a child or young person.

Our goal is to support parents, carers and families, and to help children, young people and those around them to achieve the best quality of life individually and together.

We do this through a variety of services including, but not limited to:

  • Short breaks
  • Advocacy (family liaison)
  • Sibling support
  • Parent support
  • One-to-one help
  • Family days out
  • Post-death and end of life care

What makes us different?

What makes us different is the energy and attention to detail that we bring to our work. We deliver a high standard of care that’s family oriented and invested in making a difference. We focus on the child and wrap our services around the family. We never forget that the people we work with are at the heart of everything we do, so we make sure we’re always listening to them and their evolving needs.

Children's PMLD and end-of-life services in Buckinghamshire

With that in mind, we began by working in Buckinghamshire. We quickly found that in addition to our planned services, advocacy was much needed by families. So, we introduced family liaison, which helps with everything from filling in forms to finding out which financial aid a family is eligible for. We also found there was an urgent need to help families where children have a profound and multiple learning disability (PMLD), so we widened our scope to include that as well.

We're here for you

At Forever Colours we exist to support individuals and individual families, providing what they need when they need it. That might be support grieving the loss of a baby that never came home, or providing the freedom to have a little fun at a theme park for a day, knowing that someone else is carrying some of the responsibility.

Our Carers

All of our carers are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and take lateral flow tests before any interaction with our patients and their families.

Play Therapy

Play is the way in which children learn and develop; where they can make sense of the world around them, learn to express themselves, and explore their thoughts and feelings. Our play and creative therapy services will help your child - and the whole family - address and explore their emotional, social and practical needs.
