Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity

Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity exists to make seriously ill children’s lives better.

Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity cares about children with lifelong neurological and blood conditions. These rare conditions receive very little funding, even though they have a huge impact on both the child and the family around them.

We work in partnership with organisations who share our belief that all children have the right to the best possible quality of life. We raise money to help support children in the UK living with conditions like acquired brain injury, neuro-degenerative conditions, rare forms of epilepsy and long-term blood diseases (excluding cancer).

We help these children by:

  • Funding specialist nurses and carers.
  • Supporting parent groups and charities that help families with information, activities and all-important fun.
  • Making grants to hospitals to help improve children’s facilities.
  • Giving direct assistance to families with grants to help pay for things like expensive equipment – wheelchairs for example – or activities such as weekends away with other children and families experiencing the same illnesses.

If you are seeking support for an individual child, click here for our detailed guidelines and information about how to apply for a grant.
