Who are Julia’s House?

Julia’s House is the only Children’s Hospice based in Wiltshire, with a centre in Devizes. They support children with life-limiting or life-shortening conditions and their families. The charity tailor their service to best meet each family’s specific needs and it is offered completely free of charge.
