Haven House Children’s Hospice

The Marketors Outreach programme has been asked to deliver an Outreach marketing support project for Haven House Children’s Hospice which was first conceived in the early 1990s, as the brainchild of Sue Irwin, a registered nurse and health visitor, who with friends and colleagues founded the charity to provide care to life-limited children and their families at no cost to them.

Haven House acquired a 99-year lease on The White House, a locally-listed former family home set in four acres of protected woodland. To date, Haven House has supported over 900 families, looking after children and young people aged from birth to 19 years old who have life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.

Residential and community services extend across North and North East London, West Essex and East Hertfordshire, including respite and end-of-life care. In the hospice children benefit from play activities as well as day and overnight stays.

Families can also take advantage of support groups for mums and dads and siblings as well as complementary therapies designed to reduce stress and anxiety. Haven House’s grounds include a fully accessible specialist play area and tranquil sensory garden surrounded by many acres of beautiful woodland.

The Outreach marketing support project for Haven House Children’s Hospice is being managed by Marketor Dr Kristan Tetens with support from Liveryman John Wheen.

The Worshipful Company of Marketors’ Outreach Programme matches “good cause” organisations needing “pro bono” marketing support with one or more appropriate members of the Marketors, from Freemen to Past Masters. Outreach’s professional management approach helps document, define and time limit the marketing support, delivers our members’ marketing expertise and helps the “good cause” organisation to make their own improvements. Many members of the Marketors based across the UK and elsewhere want to donate some personal time to help deliver some charitable marketing back into society. Outreach enables that activity. If you would like to help a good cause, regardless of where it is in the UK or overseas, please contact outreach@marketors.org
