Does the charity only help critically ill children?

No – we help all children regardless of their illness or whether they are critically ill, requiring minor treatment or are having regular hospital appointments. We also help children who have left hospital and who need specialist equipment at home. We fund community projects to make life easier for children their school and community too.

I thought the NHS or local authorities paid for things like this. Why do we need to raise more money?

They simply cannot provide some of the facilities or support what we wish to give to children. These include more medical equipment, nurses to become available to go out into the community to provide care at home; better learning and play equipment and entertainment for our children.

I don't live in Gloucester. Will my children benefit?

Children from all over Gloucestershire benefit from all the fascilities we provide both in the Childrens centre and other Smaller hospitals and special schools.
