Who you’ll be helping

Care for Kids North Devon provides instant financial assistance to families that have a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. This includes cancer, a heart condition, head injury, cystic fibrosis or other condition.

Because of North Devon’s rural location, all seriously ill children are now treated in specialist children’s hospitals in Bristol or beyond. For families in North Devon, this means the loss of earnings, subsistence and travel costs for parents traveling and staying in Bristol, Oxford, Birmingham or London.

Care for Kids provides a lump sum to help relieve financial concerns for families in this situation, whilst they adjust to having a very sick child and to having one or more parents away from home.

The staff want to make a stay on the Caroline Thorpe Children’s ward a positive experience for every patient. Therefore, Care for Kids finances projects on the ward, to make life more bearable for patients and their families.

Host a BIG Christmas fundraiser and you’ll be helping us continue our work for North Devon families.
