Giving families one less thing to worry about
With your help
When a child suddenly becomes ill, there’s no time to plan. The Sick Children’s Trust is the charity that gives families one less thing to worry about by giving them a place to stay, and someone to talk to, free of charge just minutes from their child’s bedside.
Our ten ‘Homes from Home’ support around 3,500 families from around the UK each year with warm and comfortable accommodation and a friendly ear to listen.
The Sick Children’s Trust is working to a future where every family with a seriously ill child in hospital can stay together, close to their child’s bedside
Keeping families together significantly improves the recovery of seriously ill children. We provide families with a sick child with a free high-quality ‘Home from Home’ accommodation, as well as practical and emotional support so they can be there for their child.
