I just wanted to pass on some very nice comments one of the parents I work with made about your service. It’s not often you hear good things especially about transport and I think you should have praise where it is due!
It is so very important for our disabled children that the people they encounter each day are able to understand their needs and respond appropriately to them. They go to special schools and special respite units for this reason but the times in between are just as important and in fact can make a significant difference to their day.
This parent told me how exceptionally good you are with her daughter who travels to Strathmore School each day. she is a very complex little girl with high care needs and not the easiest of children to manage- her mum says if there were awards for this kind of thing , you should get one!
the least I can is thank you for the wonderful job you do
Well done and kind regards
Debbie Innes, Locum Social Worker, Children with Disabilities Team East

The Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service was founded in 2007 by Fiona and John Devine in memory of their son Alexander. Alexander was diagnosed with a rare brain tumour aged just four, he sadly died four years later aged 8. Fiona and John, who live in Windsor, wanted to improve the care and support for children with life limiting and life-threatening conditions in the area.
After several years of fundraising, sufficient funds were raised to enable the charity to fund an Alexander’s Nurse (a specialised children’s palliative care nurse). Since then Alexander’s Care Team has grown and now provides a comprehensive children’s hospice service throughout Berkshire and the Thames Valley and is currently supporting 101 children and their families.
Our supported children (aged 0-19 years) have a range of complex physical, neurological and medical conditions, a significant proportion of whom have physical, mental and/or audio-visual disabilities. There are over 600 children throughout Berkshire alone and a further 670 children from the surrounding counties with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions that could benefit from our service. We are the only charity from Berkshire providing a hospice service in the community.
It has always been the vision of Fiona and John to build a children’s hospice in Berkshire and now this dream is becoming a reality. A six acre plot of land was gifted to the charity by a local landowner and planning permission was passed in 2012. Construction began on the site, near Maidenhead in Berkshire in September 2015 and is now complete. Once fully equipped, the hospice is planning to welcome families by way of a phased opening, commencing with Day Care in the New Year.
The hospice will be able to provide a much wider range of services and activities than we can currently offer giving families the choice of care they want for their child. It will be delivering respite care for the whole family so that they can enjoy quality time together, as well as end of life care with a dedicated suite with a hug room and temperature controlled child’s bedroom where parents can spend precious moments with their child after they have died. There will be overnight accommodation for up to six children with all the necessary care facilities, treatment rooms and provision for families to stay overnight. The hospice will include a hydrotherapy pool, music therapy and sensory rooms, games room and a Creative Learning Zone. There will be a large kitchen/dining area where families can socialise and eat together.

Please pass on our thanks to your friends and family who contributed to this amazing result.
In the past year, Quest RDA has been able to achieve its goal of increasing the provision of riding sessions for children with a variety of disabilities and special needs. We have five wonderful horses – Bassett, Ben, Magic, Diablo and Jack – who provide wonderful therapeutic benefits and a lot of enjoyment to our riders. We rely on fundraising from events such as the Sponsored Ride and every penny of your contribution goes towards the upkeep of the horses and the special equipment we need. Thank you!
