Education Secretary Nicky Morgan has praised Haven House Children’s Hospice and has urged more schools in Essex to support its work.

The Cabinet minister said the hospice in Woodford Green performed ‘an incredible role in enabling life-limited children to continue access education, learning and play.’

Mrs Morgan made the comments following Children’s Hospice Week which took place last week.

The Education Secretary said: ‘Haven House supports 329 children in North and North East London, West Essex and East Hertfordshire. The hospice performs an incredible role in enabling life-limited children to continue access education, learning and play. It also provides vital support to the siblings of children who use the hospice with its ‘Buddies’ service.’

Mrs Morgan praised the hospice for working with more than 8 primary and secondary schools, colleges and nurseries in Epping Forest. Haven House regularly goes into schools and conduct workshops for staff and students on how they can support life-limited children and their families.

The Conservative MP said she wanted to see even more schools support the charity.
