Ultrimax’s Donation to Northern Ireland Hospice

In a world often consumed by the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it’s easy to overlook those facing life’s most challenging battles. The Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice offers vital support to individuals and families and is the only service of its type in Northern Ireland. They provide specialist palliative care for babies, children, and young people. These services include specialist nursing care at home, supported breaks in their In-Patient Unit, end-of-life care, and family and bereavement support. They also work in partnership with the NHS to support parents with their antenatal care service, Tiny Horizons.

Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice wraps their care around the whole family, not just the child, providing emotional, practical, and social support to families during this challenging time.
