What we do

Child first, patient second.

We believe that nothing should get in the way of being a child. We exist to transform the experiences of children and young people in hospital so they can be a child first and a patient second.

Because of us:

  • Children and young people’s lives are less interrupted by illness.
  • Children and young people are less scared of hospital and have a positive experience.
  • Children and young people’s families are better supported and comforted.
  • Children and young people have an improved experience of healthcare in their community.


We enable others.

We are a grant giving organisation which distributes around £1.5m per year at the hospital in Edinburgh and other children and young people’s community healthcare settings.
