Jessie May, Children’s Charity in Bristol

Created by a family for families

Jessica May died at home aged 4 1/2 months surrounded by her family and supported by a team of nurses. Her parents created Jessie May to ensure that every child who is not expected to reach adulthood receives nursing care within the home. Since 1996 we have been providing this care, free of charge, in Bristol. Since then, we’ve expanded our service to cover North Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Bath and North East Somerset, and Swindon and Wiltshire.

“When we first met Janet, a Jessie May Nurse, Thomas immediately took a shine to her! Her initial monthly visits allowed me to catch up on chores and recharge my batteries. Now when Janet visits and takes sole charge of Thomas it gives me quality time that I need with Thomas's sister and my husband."
