26 May Local Children’s Hospice release insightful animation film
by Dan Bryans
Haven House Children’s Hospice has launched a new animation film to raise awareness of the support it provides to families.
Created for Children’s Hospice Week, which takes places from 22-28 May, the film aims to dispel the myth that children’s hospices are “dark and dingy” places filled with “doom and gloom”.
The film shows a 24-hour period at Haven House in Woodford Green with staff caring for children in a number of different ways.
From a child getting ready for school to children enjoying sensory play in the hospice’s state-of-the-art sensory room the film ends with a child getting ready for bed with the help of a nurse.
Eileen White, Director of Care at Haven House, said: “Our brand new animation film shows all the ways we support children with life-limiting conditions, whether that’s through planned respite, short break and end-of-life care or therapies designed to improve emotional and physical wellbeing.
“We know that some people still perceive children’s hospices to be dark and dingy places filled with doom and gloom, but our animation film shows this is simply not the case.
“We hope our film encourages more of our community to support our work and for families who could benefit from our services to not be afraid to ask for help.”
