Who We Are

“It’s like having a friend on your shoulder to talk to, that’s how I would describe Tree of Hope.” 

Shanell, Mum of Zion

30 Years of Helping Families

Founded in 1992, Corinne Gardener set up Tree of Hope to help children originally in the area of Bexhill in Kent, who needed funded healthcare support that we still offer today. Over three decades on, we are on a mission of growth and transformation to help as many children and young people in the UK that don’t get funded support from the NHS.
