COVID-19 children's research appeal

Help fund research to better understand how COVID-19 affects children

funding vital research

We’re on a mission to save and change children’s lives through medical research, developing treatments, vaccinations and cures.

Hope for a rare disease

Hunter syndrome is a devastating rare disease that often cuts children's lives tragically short. With your support we can push forward vital research that offers hope to these children, that in the future, lives could be saved.

Childhood cancers

In the UK almost 4,000 children and young people under 25 are diagnosed with cancer every year. We are funding research to try and improve the chances and treatment for children with brain tumours and cancer.

Cerebral palsy

Around 2,000 babies are diagnosed with cerebral palsy every year in the UK. Action is determined to help, which is why we’re funding vital research into cerebral palsy that might one day provide answers.
