A child's medical battle is perhaps the biggest endurance test a family can ever face, both physically and emotionally. When a child is sick it is vital to their healing process that their family is close by. Our mission is simple, to improve the health and wellbeing of those children by providing free accommodation and support to their families while they are in hospital.
Our facilities were established to help children live happier, healthier lives. We support families of children up to and including the age of 21, and they are never charged for their stay, regardless of whether it is for one night, or many months.
Having a sick child is stressful and while parents are focused on the medical needs of their children, our facilities aim to alleviate emotional, practical and financial stress for families. With the stressors of everyday removed, families can simply concentrate on what matters most - helping their children heal.
No child should have to face their journey alone. For the more than 1,000 families we serve each year we know they are stronger when they are together - Keeping Families Close.
