Leeds Hospitals Charity
Leeds Hospitals Charity raises valuable funds to help provide exceptional healthcare at Leeds Children’s Hospital.
Our vision is to help enable the best possible health and wellbeing for children and young adults, and the best possible support for their families. This supports the ambition of Leeds Teaching Hospitals to be the leading Children’s Hospital in the UK.
Your valuable support will help us develop new healthcare services, provide cutting edge equipment and specialist staff, support ground breaking research and innovation and enable health education and training.
Children's Heart Surgery Fund
Children’s Heart Surgery Fund (CHSF) support the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit as a world-class centre of excellence by providing the funding and resources needed to care for a patient’s heart, mind, family and future.
We provide life-saving medical equipment, parent accommodation for families and vital ward resources. We also fund staff training, scientific research and new clinical roles.
CHSF are wholly funded by your donations. Because of YOU we are able to help over 17,000 babies, children and adults each year from all over the region, who are living with congenital heart disease (CHD).
Candlelighters Trust supports children with cancer across Yorkshire who receive treatment at Leeds Children's Hospital, contributing to its recognition as a centre of excellence.
Using generous donations from individuals, businesses, trusts, and foundations, Candlelighters provides emotional, practical, and financial support to the families of children with cancer, from the point of diagnosis and for as long as is needed.
Candlelighters funds numerous roles at the hospital on the paediatric oncology wards, including a team of Family Support Workers, providing front-line support to families. This is in addition to funding support for families out in communities across the region and vital research to improve the lives and outcomes for children with cancer.
Eckersley House is one of The Sick Children’s Trust’s ‘Homes from Home’. Eckersley House gives families with a seriously ill child being treated at Leeds Children's Hospital a comfortable place to stay, just around the corner from Leeds General Infirmary, where most children's wards are located. We also offer a friendly ear, for families in need.
Hospital can be a lonely and scary place for anyone, especially a child. Providing families with somewhere to stay together just minutes from the hospital means that they can be by their sick child’s side.
By supporting The Sick Children’s Trust you can make sure these families have one less thing to worry about.
Millie Wright Children's Charity
The Millie Wright Children’s Charity provides hands-on practical and emotional support to families of children suffering from life threatening non cancerous conditions from its base on Ward L50 of Leeds Children’s Hospital. The charity recognises the needs of long-stay families, often caring for liver and kidney transplant patients, but also children with other rare non-malignant conditions.
Since being registered with The Charities Commission in May 2022, The Millie Wright Children’s Charity is growing quickly and in the coming months expects to employ dedicated Family Support Workers and extend its range of services to families facing extraordinary challenges.
