We are delighted to be working with eight children's hospices across the UK and plan to expand our programme in the future.  Here is how you can be part of Start Hospices. 


If you are a children's hospice: 

Partnerships with children's hospices are developed in consultation with arts partners on a case-by-case basis so it is not possible for a children's hospice to apply directly.  However, if you would like to register your interest in being part of a future programme, please email [email protected] with information about your hospice and how Start Hospices could help.  We would love to hear from you!


If you are an arts venue: 

In order to become a Start Hospices arts partner, the venue must have previously run a Start programme.  To find out more about becoming a Start partner, click here.  


If you want to help us raise vital funds: 

Fundraising for Children & the Arts' hospice work will ensure that we can continue to provide unique and inclusive arts experiences for families accessing hospice care. Find out more about fundraising for Start Hospices
