2023 is a special year for Julia’s House. It is our 20th anniversary. We have been providing life-changing care for the most seriously ill local children and their families for two decades. Care that is critical for families struggling to cope but would never have been there, if it wasn’t for Julia’s House.

We want to thank everyone who has helped and supported us in Dorset and Wiltshire and beyond. Everyone who has given to our appeals, fundraised, taken part in our events, donated to our shops, played our lottery, left a legacy and just been there for us, so we could be there for the local families who need us the most. We couldn’t have done it without you.
