Children’s Hospice South West

Logo of Children's Hospice South West

The Children’s Hospice South West offers assistance, hope and comfort to many families dealing with the serious and heart-breaking reality of caring for children with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses.

Established in 1995, the hospice has created a wonderful environment at their North Devon based: Little Bridge House site, as well as their Bristol and Cornwall locations, in which to care for the very sick children who visit there and to offer help and support to their families too.  That care often includes giving them one-to-one specialist attention as well as having fun times through play, music, outings and crafts – simple pleasures that many of us take for granted.

Parents, who often struggle to cope with their child’s illness, can find relief from their responsibilities of care at the hospice.  They can relax, be themselves and do what any parent wants to do – be a parent again.  Brothers and sisters, who might be feeling isolated, scared or confused, have a chance to play together, sharing special times and having fun too.

The hospices are also equipped to provide emergency care and, when the time comes, palliative and end-of-life care.

When Isca Barum Insurance Brokers were first introduced to the charities’ Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser, Naomi Dymond, at a business expo it was clear this was a charity run by people who care deeply about what they do.  Naomi and the whole CHSW team give their all to the running of the facility and they genuinely believe, and rightly so, they are making a difference in the lives of the children and families who visit.  At Isca Barum, we believe that organisations who make life-improving commitments like this need support which is why the Children’s Hospice South West has been our corporate charity since 2014 and we look forward to supporting them into the future.

Alzheimer’s Society

Dementia is not a natural part of ageing and it doesn’t just affect older people. Over 40,000 people under 65 in the UK have dementia. This is called early-onset or young-onset dementia.

The Alzheimer’s Society are the only UK charity investing in research into dementia care, cause, cure and prevention. They are committed to spending £150 million on cutting-edge research over the next decade. Every project they fund directly addresses the needs and concerns of people affected by dementia.

They fight for the rights of everyone affected by dementia. Their campaigns keep dementia firmly at the top of the political agenda. And they raise awareness, pushing for a more dementia-friendly society so people with the condition can live without fear and prejudice.

Bruce Archibold, MD of Isca Barum, is supporting the Alzheimer’s Society as his chosen charity as he recently lost his own Mother to this dreadful condition. Together with the team at Isca Barum he has completed his Directors Challenge and participated with the team in the Alzheimer’s Society Exeter Memory Walk, thus successfully raising significant funds for them.
