Your Gift: Support a Hospital Family

Learn how your gift is making a difference to young patients and their families

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.

We do all that we can during these critical moments to ensure that families receive the support they need. Whether families need meal vouchers, accommodation or simply a listening ear, the Family Support Team is there to help.

What you have to remember is that some people have absolutely nobody. Everyone says “oh you must have someone”, but no, they don’t – there are people who have nothing, and nobody who can help. But together we can make sure that at the hospital, someone is always there for them."

Your Support Matters More Than Ever

Your gift will allow us to ensure that our hospital families have the support they need to help them through the most difficult times. 

Our Family Support services are just one of many projects that exist thanks to funding from Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity. This along with our Play Programme, Financial Inclusion Service, Bereavement Service and ongoing Paediatric Research, all rely on the generosity of our supporters to continue. 

If you can, please consider joining our caring community of regular givers with a monthly or quarterly donation to ensure that we can continue being there beyond COVID-19 for those who need us most. Thank you.
