More about WellChild
We work towards achieving this vision by:
Getting Children Home
Our nationwide network of WellChild Nurses act as a single point of
contact for families, providing the practical and emotional support
needed to get their children out of hospital quicker and empowering them
to care for their children safely at home.
Transforming Homes & Gardens
Our WellChild Helping Hands programme recruits volunteers to help
make homes and gardens safe, accessible and sensory for children and
young people living at home with serious health needs.
Families caring for a child with serious health needs can often feel
isolated and alone. The WellChild Family Tree connects families from
across the UK for mutual advice, support and friendship.
Empowering Parents & Carers
Providing round the clock medical care to a child with serious health
needs can be a scary prospect for parents and carers. We have
established training units to ensure they feel fully equipped with the
skills and confidence to care for their child safely at home.
We fund and facilitate research and campaigns to give families a voice, influence policy and practice and create a brighter future for all children and young people.
