Giving seriously ill children the best chance to thrive

What we do

Through a nationwide network of WellChild Nurses; home and garden transformation projects; and family information, training and support programmes, WellChild makes it possible for children and young people with complex health needs to be cared for at home instead of hospital, wherever possible.

WellChild is entirely reliant on voluntary funding. With 60% of forecasted income lost in 2020 due to COVID-19, please help ensure we are ready to respond to the needs of seriously ill children and their families in the future.
