Support the Great North Children’s Hospital Foundation, part of Newcastle Hospitals Charity, and help make the hospital experience the best it can be for children and their families. 

Annually, your kindness could help us to support:

32,000 children that attend the hospital as inpatients

44,000 children who visit the Paediatric Emergency Department

150,000 children who have outpatient appointments

15,000 children who attend as day cases at the hospital

The Great North Children’s Hospital, based at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle, is one of the four largest children’s hospitals in the UK. They provide a full range of tailored children’s health services to children from across the north of England and beyond, including specialist cancer services.

Its young patients include thousands of local children from the North East and Cumbria as well as those who travel with their families from across the country, and even the world, to benefit from the hospital’s specialist services.

Our fund, the Great North Children’s Hospital Foundation, works to help make hospital stays easier and more enjoyable for these young patients. Recently, we have been able to support:

❤️ A hardship fund for families with children in hospital, helping to make sure that financial worries do not impact them spending time with their child. 

❤️ A dedicated Project Officer, who helps bring fun and playtime to children with chronic conditions, delivered in partnership with NU Foundation.

❤️ Access to games, toys, and game consoles, to help brighten a hospital stay and distract patients when needed.

❤️ A partnership with the MediCinema at the RVI, allowing for an additional cinema screening to be shown each week, bringing the magic of cinema to ill children in hospital. 

When you join our team and support us, you will benefit from from a dedicated and friendly fundraising team, some of the lowest fundraising targets in the region and a free running vest or t-shirt. We’ll be with you every step of the way!
