Geographical remit: 


We are a small children's cancer charity supporting children and their families throughout the Wessex region - Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Dorset, West Sussex, Wiltshire and the Channel Islands. We exist to help families in crisis by giving urgent financial support following their child's diagnosis. When a child is diagnosed, the family's word falls apart leaving a devastating impact. Everything the family knows suddenly becomes uncertain as they face months and years of gruelling treatment.

Many parents are forced to give up work or take unpaid leave to care for their sick child but the mortgage/rent, council tax and other bills don't go away. Whether it's helping with travel costs to the hospital, helping with household bills or sadly funeral expenses we help ease the financial burden families face at this very difficult time by awarding hardship grants


  • We award financial hardship grants to children diagnosed with cancer and their families
  • We arrange a Day's Out Programme for families to the theatre, theme parks, activity centres
