Naomi House is an organization that provides hospices to young children with life-threatening conditions. They have locations around England and provide respite care, end-of-life care, emergency support, and bereavement support to the children and their families. These hospices are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and they only receive ten percent of their funding from the Department of Health so they rely heavily on fundraisers and donations in order to provide their services to children. Naomi House has an extremely dedicated staff and their mission is to bring care to every child with a life-limiting condition in England.
Because of Kate’s work with children’s hospices through EACH, they hold a special place in her heart. Kate is not an official royal patron of the Naomi House but she continues to work with them because of her commitment to the well-being of all children in the UK. On April 29, 2013, Kate visited Naomi House to kick off Children’s Hospice Week. While there, she toured the facilities and sat in on a hydrotherapy session. Later in the afternoon, she joined some of the children and their families for afternoon tea, where Ollie Wade performed his charity single for her.
