JJ Acquisitions supports a select number of charities which all have a personal connection in some way to the two directors. The charities range from local to national and international organisations.
Naomi House and Jacksplace hospices for children and young adults provide respite, emergency and end of life care to life-limited children and young people across the central south of England.
The charity offers a unique and vital service wherein families are able to take advantage of much needed respite care. Caring for a child with a life-limiting condition can be stressful and exhausting, and so each family takes advantage of the respite care in different ways: sometimes the whole family will stay at the hospice, giving parents and siblings the chance to relax, while others will leave their child in the charity’s care while they recharge their batteries at home or on holiday.
Initially set up in 1981 to provide palliative care and support for terminally ill patients within the Salisbury area, the hospice has grown over the years and is now able to accommodate up to ten patients in its purpose-built facility.
The hospice provides nursing and medical care, emotional and practical support, welfare advice, occupational and physiotherapy, complementary therapies, spiritual care and creative activities. Care is provided for people in their own homes and through non-residential and inpatient services at Salisbury Hospice.
