Hope Support Services

Practical help and support groups

Hope’s support is available to young people aged 11 and over when a close family member is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Online support is available nationally, our face-to-face service is currently available in Herefordshire and Gloucestershire.

Nationally, young people in a family health crisis can access Hope Online at, where they can access one-to-one support via Facebook or video chat such as Skype, and a young people’s community via a closed Facebook group. In Herefordshire and Gloucestershire, we also offer youth sessions and ‘Hope on the Road’ trips where the young people get the chance to meet others their age going through a similar situation, learn new skills or chat privately to Hope's professional support team. These activities take place at a variety of venues across Herefordshire and Gloucestershire.
