When the COVID-19 crisis took hold, WellChild had to respond quickly to an urgent and unprecedented demand for help from families caring for children with complex health needs. Meanwhile, the charity faced a loss of 60% of forecasted income.
"I am incredibly proud to say that WellChild has moved with urgency and purpose to tackle the new challenges that children with complex needs and their families have faced because of this crisis."

"WellChild’s programmes have adapted and expanded to take on the challenges presented by COVID-19. The world and the way we work changed, but our mission to give children and families the best chance to thrive at home was more important than ever."
