There are an estimated 100,000 children and young people living across the UK with serious or exceptional health needs, and this figure is rising.
Seriously ill children with life-long conditions and their families across the UK are not getting the physical care and emotional wellbeing support they need.
Families caring for a seriously ill child are facing financial burden and are not receiving access to financial support that they desperately need.
We help to provide children and young people, who have incurable illnesses, with the complex care they and their families need. We find imaginative ways to support these children and strive to ensure their voices are heard. Our nurses help to meet their emotional and physical needs.

How we succeed
The voice of the child is paramount. Seriously ill children, young people and their families are empowered to influence their own care.
Seriously ill children get access to the care and emotional wellbeing support they need through their Roald Dahl healthcare professionals.
Every seriously ill child or young person and their family has the support they need to overcome life’s challenges.
Children are empowered to reach their potential, families are not impacted by financial burden and emotional well being is improved.
To help and empower seriously ill children to lead a marvellous life
