About the Charity
The Yorkshire Children's Hospital Fund was established in 1989 to help the region's hospitals purchase essential medical and emergency equipment for their Children's Wards.
The main aims of the charity are to:
- Provide funding for medical equipment that is necessary to deliver optimum care to children in Yorkshire's hospitals, when such equipment is not available through NHS sources.
- Provide part-funding to access 'state of the art' technologies/equipment, not otherwise available in Yorkshire which are outside NHS provision.
Grants may also be given for
- Paediatric research projects to take place within Yorkshire with the aim of developing improved care of sick children in the region.
- Establish perpetual funds which will grant-aid research and improve medical facilities.
