How we can help you

Despite the great work that our hospitals and hospices do, there are many things that can make a difference that the NHS cannot provide and these can only be funded by charitable donations – things that make a big difference to the quality of a sick child’s life and memories that help support parents’ through difficult times. We aim to do this by providing grants from the funds we raise to support sick children/young people up to the age of 19, and their families from all over the UK. We are a grant making trust consisting of seven Trustees and many fantastic volunteers.

Providing funds

We provide funds for: Specialist medical, educational and recreational equipment to benefit the many, or a specific item for an individual that could make life a little more comfortable for them. Travel, parking and accommodation costs when children are hospitalised, or have lots of appointments, particularly when far away from home. Short breaks away, holidays and days out, which means that families spend precious time together, after time apart. Treats for terminally ill children.
