More than 100,000 children and young people are living with serious illness across the UK. Many spend months, even years in hospital simply because there is no support enabling them to leave. Through a nationwide network of WellChild Nurses, home make-over projects and family support groups, WellChild helps give these children the best chance to thrive – at home, together with their families.
Last year, WellChild improved the lives of over 1,200 children and young people. However, this is just 1% of the estimated number desperately in need of support.
WellChild’s vision – our ultimate aim – is for all seriously ill children and young people from across the UK to have the best quality of life whatever their diagnosis, situation or location.Find out More
