Helping Families from the Highlands & Islands
Last year more than 1,800 children from the Highlands & Islands were treated at the children's hospital in Glasgow.
There are few moments in life as worrying as an admission to hospital.
At these difficult times, families will often arrive with nothing but the clothes on their back, lives are turned upside down in a heartbeat, and a new life in hospital begins.
Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity funds a range of vital services to help families when they are far from home.
From additional funding for the Family Support and Information Team, to the Bereavement Service, Financial Support Services and support with food, clothing and accommodation, families are never alone at the hospital in Glasgow - no matter how far from home they may be.

In 2018-19 we provided £674,086 of family support related services. With nearly 200,000 patient visits each year, there is more demand than ever to give families in hospital the extra special support they deserve.
