One of Momentum's first projects with Epsom Hospital was the completion of a new Parents’ Room within Paediatric Oncology. One of the bland hospital rooms has been transformed into a calm and peaceful environment where parents and carers can escape to during the long periods spent in hospital accompanying their sick children. As well as being a place to relax, there are facilities for making tea, coffee and a light bite. Parents of children with cancer typically spend two to three years going through treatment and are often stressed and exhausted. This special room is a lifeline to them and provides an oasis of tranquillity and comfort.

"This wonderful new space gives parents a chance to feel in control when their world seems out of control."
