Building a better future for children who visit Sheffield Children's Hospital 

Our charity exists to enhance Sheffield Children’s Hospital through advancements in pioneering medical treatment, whilst in a comfortable and engaging environment, changing children’s lives every day from across the UK and beyond.

Children and young people visit Sheffield Children’s Hospital with every condition imaginable. Every day our doctors and nurses treat children with ground-breaking medical advancements making our hospital one of the top children’s hospital for paediatric care.

Our hospital is not a sad place it is filled with smiles and laughter from all of our patients, as we create an environment with adventure, distraction and different things to discover around every corner.

Sheffield Children’s Hospital is an extraordinary place which has always depended on charitable support; you can make a difference every day to the thousands of children and their families that visit.

Our patients and their families inspire us to be bolder, to be braver and to make every day count.

Be brave, be bold, be Team Theo

  • Team Theo

    Team Theo is a unique group of life changes. They motivate and inspire everyone they meet by raising money for Sheffield Children’s Hospital. Anyone can join the team you just need to have a love for our hospital and determination to reach your goal. Our team is for everyone, young people right through to grandparents. Team Theo loves you all. 

  • Our Mission

    Children come from all over the country to see our hospital’s specialists and we work hard to make it better by funding things which the NHS does not cover. 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.

  • Our Vision

    Patients and their families are at the centre of everything we do. They deserve to be treated with the best facilities in a hospital designed with children in mind.

    • Visiting the hospital can be daunting – we need to make the clinical more comfortable creating a space to play and feel at home.
    • We want to make our hospital feel better, by brightening our hospital walls to make children smile.
    • We want to provide specialist equipment to ensure our children have the best possible care.

    Let's make it better together!
