Familienhafen is the first outpatient children's hospice in the Hamburg area. Since 2009, it has been supporting parents and siblings of seriously ill children until the end of their lives and beyond.

The work does not involve medical care or domestic tasks, but rather psychosocial relief and support. The support is tailored to the individual needs of the family. The volunteer guide's role in a family can range from accompanying the sick child, to playing and doing activities with the siblings, to being a dialogue partner for the parents and children.

Before starting their work, volunteer guides undergo 120 hours of training to prepare them for their work with families. Topics include dealing with the issues of dying, death and grief, ways of communicating and working in a children's hospice.

NCL Foundation

Childhood Dementia (Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis, or NCL) is a metabolic disease that has hardly been researched to date. It is incurable, progresses inexorably and leads to early death. The NCL Foundation is committed to national and international research funding in order to give children affected by NCL a prospect of previously missing therapeutic and curative approaches.

It is possible for any child to be severely traumatised, for example because of an accident or natural disaster, violence or abuse. Ankerland offers help for severely traumatised children and adolescents, their caregivers and the professional world. This includes the first intensive trauma therapy centre for children and adolescents in Germany, which works like a day clinic and was opened in Hamburg Eppendorf in 2016.
