How we fund our care

Every year it costs £5.6 million for us to provide our specialist care and support to children with life-shortening conditions and their families.

Most of this figure is donated and fundraised by our incredibly generous supporters. Money we urgently need because we’re independent from the NHS and have no guaranteed statutory funding.
