Aims & Objectives

To support children up to age of 18 years old suffering from serious, life-threatening or life-limiting illnesses within the local area. The Trust will also seek to ensure remaining family members, brothers & sisters are not forgotten throughout the duration of such illnesses. To do this we will provide through direct funding to families:-
  • Nursing Care
  • Respite Care
  • Treatment Costs
  • Counselling services
  • Bereavement counselling and follow-up
  • Transport costs to enable medical treatment to take place where necessary
The Trust will endeavour to ensure that families looking after a sick or disabled child will be able to source help locally if their needs are not being met through HSE Services. For example a set number of nursing hours per month for a child with an acute illness to enable parents suffering from lack of sleep to get some much needed rest or respite care for a sick child or teenager to give their siblings some 'one on one' time with their parents.

As this is a very new Charity the needs of the community will be carefully monitored and adapted as required, to do this we will liaise with local community health workers, and the various acute hospitals. We also hope to link in with local support groups who are already providing such valuable services to ensure relevant experienced teams are in place to provide necessary care. The board of trustees will be made up of Solicitors, Accountants, Local G.P’s, Community Health workers, Nurses & local residents.

Funding Applications can be made online.
