About us

The money raised through donations buys life-saving equipment, funds vital research and treatment for thousands of children from across the world and helps us create a comfortable, engaging environment for our patients at Sheffield Children's Hospital.

Sheffield Children's is at the heart of everything we do at Charity HQ

We come together as one team, delivering over and above the NHS provision and ultimately enhancing the patient and family experience. Our colleagues and stakeholders are all deeply proud of how the charity works together with Sheffield Children’s, to ensure that children and young people can receive the very best care, in the best possible environment.

What we do

Here at Charity HQ we help to change children’s lives every day by supporting pioneering ground-breaking medical treatment and creating a comfortable and engaging environment at Sheffield Children’s. Donations, fundraising, sponsorship and everything in between help create a healthier future for children and young people who visit Sheffield Children’s. 

What makes Sheffield Children’s special? Most importantly it comes down to people - and we think the people who work here are amazing! Kindness and compassion are key, and our colleagues have those things in bucketloads. Everyday patients and their families tell us how caring and kind our colleagues have been, and how they’ve been made to feel safe and at home with us.

We fund four key areas:

A comfortable and engaging environment built with children in mind

Specialist medical equipment

New facilities to extend the range of treatment provided

Research into the care, prevention and cure of childhood illnesses
