Registered Charity No: 284416 (England & Wales).
The Sick Children’s Trust is the UK’s leading provider of family accommodation and support at children’s hospitals across the country.
For any parent, there’s nothing more important than being there when your child is sick, to help them get better. Every day, life for families across the country is thrown into absolute turmoil with the news that their child has been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, or has suffered life-changing injuries in a serious accident, and must be rushed to hospital for specialist treatment.
The Sick Children’s Trust supports families during this deeply traumatic time, by providing high-quality ‘Home from Home’ accommodation at hospitals across the country where families can stay together, completely free of charge, and be there to support their child.
We currently support around 4,000 families per year, but our vision is of a future where every family with a seriously ill child in hospital will be able to stay together, close to their child’s bedside.
We receive no government funding, and so it’s your support that can bring this vision one step closer to becoming a reality. A gift in your Will to The Sick Children’s Trust will leave a lasting legacy, and make it possible for families to be together when they need each other most.
