Meadowhall's Chosen Charity 2016/17 is Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice

Open today

09:00 - 20:00

At Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, we care for children and young adults with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions. We are currently supporting around 250 families, both in our hospice and in family homes. In just one year, Bluebell Wood provides more than 50,000 of hours of care.

Our services are always developing to meet the needs of families. Short breaks, end of life treatment and care, emergency admissions, counselling, home visits and activity therapy sessions are just a few of the many wide ranging services Bluebell Wood provides. In just one year, we provide around:  

1750 short breaks
300 emergency admissions
315 days of end of life care
450 home visits
190 child day care sessions
400 young adult sessions
1,000 hours of support for siblings
1,200 hours of bereavement support and counselling
and much, much more.
Our building is welcoming and homely for families facing the toughest of times; our Care Team members are on hand providing specialist support tailored for each child or young adult. We have plenty of fun activities for families to create special memories together, including soft play, large gardens, a sensory room and play/music therapy areas.

It costs more than £4m to keep our doors open for families across South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire, North Derbyshire and part of North Lincolnshire. Bluebell Wood receives around 10% of its funding from government sources. We are one of only 53 children’s hospices nationally.

Demand for our services continues to grow as nationally there are estimated to be 49,000 children and young people with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition.

Take a look at their events calendar here to see how you can take part in helping raise funds for Bluebell Wood.

Future Charities

Our support is directed towards regional and local community causes with the majority of effort being directed towards support for the immediate catchment surrounding Meadowhall. We focus our support where we can deliver the biggest impact and where the initiative broadly matches our criteria.


We will consider support: 

1. to registered charities or not-for profit organisations based in South Yorkshire, in particular we provide support for the immediate catchment to Meadowhall. 
2. where there is clear, immediate and long-lasting benefit to the recipients. 
3. where we are aware of what exactly the support will be used for. 
4. where, if required, the charity is able to provide the latest 2 years´ audited Annual Accounts. 


What we don't support:

We are unable to consider requests for support for any of the following: 
1. organisations which are not recognised charities or not-for profit organisations. 
2. activities which are primarily the responsibility of central or local government, or some other responsible body. 
3. contribute to running costs, including rent or staff wages. 
4. activities which collect funds for subsequent redistribution to other charities or individuals. 
5. expeditions or overseas travel. 
6. individuals, including students. 
7. loans or business finance. 
8. overseas activities or charities. 
9. promotion of religion or the restoration or upkeep or places of worship. 
10. petitions 
11. sponsorship or marketing appeals. These are treated separately. 


How we support 

We wish to make contributions which will have a meaningful long term impact in the community. We therefore focus our support to a limited number of causes or organisations for longer periods where we can see the impact of our contributions and where we can build good relationships and better understanding of areas of need. 


Our support 

Here are just some examples of how we have shown our support; 
• Providing advertising opportunities in community or charitable publications 
• Environmental activities 
• Offering consultancy, expertise and research opportunities 
• Staff volunteering 
• Hosting arts, cultural and sporting events 
• Use of company premises/resources 
• Work placements 


Your ‘Support’ application 

Simply print off and complete the form, together with any supporting literature you feel will strengthen your chances of receiving support. The form must be completed legibly and in full, and sent to: Secretary to the Support Committee, Meadowhall Shopping Centre, Management Suite, 1 The Oasis, Meadowhall Centre, Sheffield, S9 1EP.

If your request does not satisfy this criteria, your application will be declined. If the request does meet with the specified criteria, the application will then be given further consideration at the next Support Committee meeting held monthly. As the number of applications typically exceeds the support Meadowhall is able to offer, the Committee exercise their discretion in making any awards even in circumstances where the criteria may be satisfied. 

All applicants will receive acknowledgement within 5 working days, and will at a later date be informed as to whether their application has been successful. If your application is unsuccessful, then you should wait at least 1 year before re-applying.

Longer Term Support 

Meadowhall selects a local charity, which they pledge to support for an agreed period of time, this may be between one to two years. In doing so, we are able to make contributions which will have a meaningful long term impact in the community. It is our intention to support these organisations for longer periods where we can see the impact of our contributions and where we can build good relationships and gain a better understanding of the areas of need.

We focus our support towards organisations that contribute to the immediate catchment surrounding Meadowhall. Whether it’s fundraising, recruiting volunteers or simply raising awareness to a good cause, Meadowhall provides the perfect platform for any Charity to benefit. With over 25 million consumers visiting each year, Meadowhall’s Charities Of The Year will be given privileged access to the region’s largest retail destination where you will be able to deliver your marketing plans and activities for a total of twelve months.

Any organisation wishing to apply for Charity Of The Year, must complete their application before September 30th each year. You may request an Application form from the Secretary to the Support Committee, Meadowhall Shopping Centre, Management Suite, 1 The Oasis, Meadowhall Centre, Sheffield, S9 1EP.
