How we are funded


The Children's Foundation

We are extremely grateful to The Children's Foundation, which supports our delivery in the Great North Children's Hospital. They also collect funds on our behalf - if you would like to donate please visit


Children's Heart Unit Fund

The generosity of the Trustees of the Childrens Heart Unit Fund, CHUF, means that we are able to visit the children in the Paediatric Heart Unit in the Freeman Hospital.  If you would like to see more about CHUF's work, or to make a donation, please visit


Trusts, foundations and grant givers

In partnership with the host hospitals we approach local, regional and national trusts to help us provide funding for training, equipment, delivery and campaigns linked to general health and well-being.


Private Donations

We welcome private donations from any individual and these gifts are vital to the upkeep of the programme. Individuals can support a good cause close to home where they can physically see the benefits and can choose which individual hospital programme their donations go towards. Please contact us if you would like to make a donation and further our work in the North East.
