Registered Charity No
No child or young person wants to be in hospital, but for those who have to be, Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity (ECHC) is there to make the experience as positive as possible.
The reality is that every day young lives are held on a knife edge as children, families and staff fight devastating and complex illnesses. And every day we support their emotional wellbeing and mental health as they face some of the toughest times of their lives.
We fund ground-breaking medical research and equipment so our NHS colleagues can do the best possible job. And we make the hospital building as welcoming and non-clinical as it can possibly be, transforming bedsides into art galleries, waiting areas into discos and courtyards into concerts. All so that children feel less afraid, less isolated, and more supported.
No matter the illness, condition, injury or length of hospital stay, we are determined to ensure that a child or young person's life does not go on hold and nothing gets in the way of them being a child.
We simply couldn’t do this without you, so please sign up today!
