Haven House Children’s Hospice in Woodford Green set to build an extension after getting £464k in government funding
Haven House Children’s Hospice in Woodford Green is set to build an extension after receiving £464,288 in government funding.
The hospice in High Road which supports children with life-limiting conditions and their families is receiving a share of a £60million fund from the Department of Health.
A spokesman for the hospice said it will help to build an extension at its White House home – an “arts and crafts style” house built in 1906.
She said: “It means we can offer our families so much more and have more office space in one place.”
Fourteen London hospices will benefit from £4.8m through the scheme which is run in partnership with charity Help the Hospices.
