This Christmas, help WellChild guide children safely home where they can thrive

WellChild providing vital support at Christmas

This Christmas, hundreds of seriously ill children in hospitals around the UK will be waiting and wanting to go home. Many of these children could make the difficult journey home with the support of a WellChild Nurse. Find out how Benjamin transitioned home from hospital with the support of WellChild Nurse Alex.
