Registered Charity No: 208701 (England & Wales), SC039284 (Scotland).

Action Medical Research is a UK-wide charity funding vital research to help sick and disabled babies and children.

Since 1952 we have contributed to some of the most significant medical breakthroughs in recent history beginning with the polio vaccine which has eradicated new cases of the disease in the UK.

Today, we continue to find and fund the very best medical research to help stop the suffering of babies and children caused by disease and disability. We want to make a difference in:

• tackling premature birth and treating sick and vulnerable babies;
• helping children affected by disability, disabling conditions and infections;
• targeting rare diseases that together severely affect many forgotten children.

We receive no government support and rely entirely on voluntary donations.
