Robotics, virtual reality and artificial intelligence are changing our lives. At NCCHT, these will be used to change how we care for children. The Centre will be a place to create, test and put into practice these and other child health technologies.
National Centre for Child Health Technology
We need your help to raise £2million towards the build of a new world-class research and technology centre - the National Centre for Child Health Technology (NCCHT) - which will be run by Sheffield Children's NHS Foundation Trust and based at the Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park.
Everyone, together in one space.
We're delighted to be a key partner and funder of an exciting new project at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park - The National Centre for Child Health Technology (NCCHT) will be run by Sheffield Children's NHS Foundation Trust, and we need your help to raise £2million towards its build.
The NCCHT will be a place to develop world-leading research and build new technologies to solve the biggest challenges in children's healthcare. It will bring together children, clinicians, inventors and engineers under the same roof, with state-of-the-art facilities for manufacturing, digital development and the opportunity to deliver Sheffield Children’s clinical care.

How SightPlus helped Charlie
Charlie took part in a research study into how augmented reality could be used as a visual aid for children and young people with visual impairment (VI). The device was called SightPlus and it helps those with VI to use their remaining sight to see more clearly up close and at a distance. Charlie was able to use SightPlus and this heartwarming video shows the first time he put the headset on. This amazing technology is just one example of how tech can change how we care for children.
