Why we exist
To inspire and preserve the human spirit.
Providing compassionate support for very sick hospitalised babies, children and adults.
Medical treatment is one part of the response to a life threatening diagnosis. At a time when it feels that so much has been taken away, supportive therapies can provide the positive counterbalance that keeps a person feeling human.
We want to provide every person facing a life-challenging condition or illness with the full circle of life-restoring support they need to preserve their spirit.
How we do this?
- By providing the restorative benefits of evidence based supportive therapies to those who need them most in hospital
- By demonstrating the value of our work to the NHS and the healthcare sector through research and evaluation
- Through education – by sharing our expertise, philosophy and compassion… to increase the impact of the Full Circle model locally and nationally
By completing the full circle of support through these and other approaches, we can help people find the strength and inspiration they need to deal with the challenges of serious illness.
You can help us in a number of ways
The pioneering Full Circle vision was first developed by our founder Suzanne Ruggles who, having twice survived near fatal illnesses, has worked tirelessly and in collaboration with doctors, nurses, researchers and therapists to develop Full Circle’s award-winning integrated medicine programmes.
Leading the way in the UK since 2000, our hospital-based work began with its successful integration into some of the most intensive medical environments of leading London hospital, St George’s University Hospitals Foundation Trust. Full Circle is now expanding into other trusts in the UK.
Being human #beinghuman
Fuelled by a joint desire to support the human being in the most intensive hospital environments we have already been able to reach over 2,000 people from the tiniest babies in intensive care to those undergoing months of isolation and uncertainty following bone marrow transplantation.
