WellChild’s work to improve the health of children has a huge impact through its commitment to funding innovative research, clinicians and scientists.
WellChild's established profile as a funder of children's health research within the research and scientific community has seen over £20 million invested since 1977.
There is, however, still much more to be done and we continue to invest in innovative, high impact, high quality and effective research that influences and ensures the best quality of life and clinical care for chilren and young people with long term and serious illness.

WellChild statement on use of animals in research
'If we had not had this endowment from WellChild we would have found it very difficult to do the work we do because it is not easily fundable. Thanks to WellChild we had a laboratory facility and a guaranteed salary that meant we had something to hand everything on'
