The James Hopkins Trust

The James Hopkins Trust
The James Hopkins Trust

What we do.

The aim of the Trust is to help severely disabled, life threatened and life limited young children aged 0 – 5 years in Gloucestershire, so that the quality of their lives may be enriched.

Parents can self refer to the charity, phone and talk to their friendly and helpful staff for more information.

This aim is achieved through three objectives:

  1. The provision of nursing respite care either in the family home or at our daycare centre
  2. The provision of equipment specially adapted to the needs of the individual child
  3. The provision of financial help for visits to specialist hospitals outside Gloucestershire

Although all three objectives have been fulfilled many times over, by far the most important and the most in demand is Respite Care. This is the cornerstone of the Trust policy and, for a growing number of families, it is a lifeline of desperately needed support.
