Jayne Hurditch: Sheffield-based charity Amy’s House was founded in 2003 by Jayne Hurditch’s parents, Maurice and Meriel Littlewood. Their youngest granddaughter, Molly, was born with severe special needs and saw first-hand the difficulties their daughter Jayne faced caring for Molly. Sadly, Jayne’s older daughter Amy passed away in 1999 after contracting Meningococal Scepticemia (Meningitis B). After this devastating event, the family set up Amy’s House in Amy's memory. Amy’s House cares for children and also offers weekend respite for parents and carers who don’t often get a well-deserved break. It also gives parents the chance to concentrate on siblings who may not receive as much attention during the week. Amy’s House provides children and young people with somewhere to play and engage with other children away from school. In 2011 the family were, again, devastated when Molly passed away. After this massive blow, the family wanted to include Molly's memory in the Amy's House story and set up Molly's Mates, a project for older children/teenagers. Here, they can practise life skills training and do everything that teenagers like to do, such as going to the cinema, bowling and eating out, but in a safe, stimulating environment and with support. Helping parents and children motivates Jayne as she remembers the struggles she faced with her own daughters. Sylwia Blach is a Polish blogger, author and software programmer.
