Your Gift: A Wee Helping Hand

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

For some families a hospital visit can become a long term stay, which can put a significant burden on their finances.

Initially people don’t worry about their bills and financial commitments, but when they are by their child’s side in hospital the costs mount up. It can become like running two households and can be incredibly tough on families.

We are proud to have funded the Money and Debt Advice Service at the children’s hospital, which helps families access welfare support.

Families like Lesley and David's, whose son Nathan was born with a congenital heart defect and spent the first 6 months of his life in the Royal Hospital for Children after life-saving heart surgery.

“At first we didn’t think we needed help because we both worked. As time went on and we spent more time away from work we noticed the costs of having a child in hospital mounting. The Family Support and Information team made it all so easy and took away the stress from the daunting forms."


No parent should have to deal with financial worries whilst dealing with the stress and anxiety of having a child in hospital.

You can make their time in hospital a little easier by supporting our Financial Inclusion Servive, to give families the financial support when they need it most. 

Your Support Matters More Than Ever

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

Our Financial Inclusion Service is just one of many projects that exist thanks to funding from Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity. This along with our Play Programme, Family Support 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.
