A very brief history of a very special place

Naomi House opened in 1997 following a campaign by the local community to raise the £5 million needed to build the hospice and cover running costs for one year. The land on which the hospice is built – the stunning Sutton Manor estate – was once owned by the film Magnate, J Arthur Rank.

Each year we pay a rent of 12 red roses to the Cornelius-Reid family. Traditionally this was paid to Mary Cornelius-Reid who generously offered us the land on which the hospice is built, but we now pay our rent to Mary’s youngest daughter, Naomi, after whom the hospice was named.

Since opening we have cared for 1,144 life-limited and life-threatened children and young people. It is thanks to the community across the Wessex region that our service has developed, married passion and progression, and provided the support that families need on good days, difficult days and last days.

Save the Date!

Come and celebrate our 21st Anniversary with us on our open day! The hospice will be open to the public on Saturday 8th September and we'll have lots of fun activities for the whole family to enjoy!
