Where your money goes

Thanks to our dedicated and generous supporters, we raise over £200,000 each year. We are indebted to the donations we receive from individuals, families, schools, businesses and charitable trusts. Whilst the majority of the money we raise is spent on vital pieces of equipment, we also assist in funding specialist staff training and a Family Centred Care Co-Ordinator and have a welfare fund to help families during their stay on the unit.

To give you an idea of how the money is spent, below is a list of some of the vital equipment we provide with the help of our supporters:
