In collaboration with Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Edge Hill University, the ‘Better At Home’ Suite is the UK’s first parent and carer training facility. The suite provides a safe place for families to learn and practice many of the skills they will need to care for their child at home – from managing their ventilation, to feeding them via a tube.

Our investment into groundbreaking child health research began in 1977 and since then we have provided over £23 million in grants to research fellows, clinicians and nurse researchers at some of the UK’s most established hospitals and research units.
