The children and young people we help

My Roald Dahl nurse is the one person I can talk to who doesn’t make me feel small. I can ask anything that I’m worried about without feeling silly.

Sebastian's mum

I think probably kindness is my number one attribute in a human being. I'll put it before any of the things like courage or bravery or generosity or anything else.

Roald Dahl

A family with a child with a disability has about a third more expenses. There are loads of extra costs because of hospitals or life-limiting conditions.

Social worker

Our Roald Dahl Research Award will allow us to map rare brain conditions in children. We hope this will help ground-breaking research into new treatments.

Dr Rob Forsyth, Senior Lecturer in Paediatric Neurology

My job is to reassure parents that they're not alone. I help them
make sure that their child can live their life to the full.

Lynn, Roald Dahl nurse

Your Roald Dahl Research Award helped us to articulate what we have been battling to say to the NHS for a very long time.
