Groundbreaking technology will offer the public a new innovative way to see inside a Worcester-based children’s hospice.

Acorns Children’s Hospice has launched a 360-degree virtual reality tour to give a more immersive introduction to its facilities and services as well as tackle common misconceptions about hospices.

The pioneering software was created in a collaborative project between the charity, Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust and developers Owl 360.

Users can explore the corridors of the charity’s Worcester-based hospice, Acorns for the Three Counties, and see its warm home from home environment for themselves.

Janine Warner, Deputy Head Nurse at Acorns for the Three Counties, said: “We’re extremely grateful to Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust and Owl 360 for creating this amazing new tool and we’ve enjoyed working with their teams to bring our hospice to life in this way.

“Not only will it help families new to Acorns feel like they’ve already been to our hospice before they visit for the first time, it will also give the public and our supporters, whose generosity enables us to continue our work, the chance to see the difference their donations and fundraising makes.”
