Our care

Accessing our care

Below you’ll find all the information you need to access the different services available at Chestnut Tree House.

How to make a referral

  • If you are a young person with a life-shortening condition you can refer yourself if you wish.
  • If you’re looking to refer your own child we’d be very happy to hear from you.
  • If you are reaching out on behalf of a family with a child or young person in need of care, then you will need to discuss the referral with the family before you get in touch with us.

Who can access care with us?

Our doors are open to children with life-shortening conditions who are not expected to reach adulthood.

We accept children from birth to 17 years old, and families must reside in West Sussex, East Sussex, Brighton & Hove or South East Hampshire. We will also consider pre-birth referrals and referrals for young people aged over 17 years old in special circumstances.
