Why choose Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity?

Thousands of children in the UK suffer from a rare or undiagnosed condition. The children helped by Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity face the uncertainty of a serious illness, often rare or even unknown to the NHS, while their family struggles without the support and reassurance they need.

We’re a small charity with a big impact and focus our work where it’s needed most:

  • We're the leading supplier of Specialist Paediatric Nurses, with over 50 Roald Dahl Specialist Children's Nurses based at hospitals and healthcare centres in the UK
  • Our Marvellous Family Grants directly support seriously ill children and their families living in challenging financial circumstances
  • Marvin, our Marvellous Crocodile and unique charity mascot was created by our Marvellous President, Sir Quentin Blake!
  • We receive no government funding

Be part of Team Marvellous!

We may be small but we help children all over the UK – from Lands End to John O’Groats and across the water to Northern Ireland. Our support could be through one of our wonderful Roald Dahl Specialist Children’s Nurses or a direct grant to make life easier for an affected family facing financial hardship. 

We help over 20,000 children every year, but there are many more who need us. Join Team Marvellous and help us to reach those children and families who need us most.

Here's what some of our current partners have to say:

Busy Bees: “We look to help charities that are aligned with our thinking: that children deserve the best possible start in life. Our partnership with the Roald Dahl team has afforded some fantabulous opportunities to reach out to our children and parents with some wonderful Phizz-Whizzing activities and events for our children at our nurseries and within their local communities throughout the year. 
Our children love dressing up so the Dahlicious Dress Up Day is always a popular event on the nursery calendar.  It’s also a great way of combining learning through fun and thoroughly engaging the children as well as helping to ensure that Dahl’s tales live on through childhood and adulthood alike.”

Dunelm: “We’re delighted to be working with Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity over the next 12 months. Through selling merchandise from the charity’s Marvin the Marvellous Crocodile zip pulls to Christmas cards, as well as hosting fantastic colleague fundraising events such as the charity’s Big Brave Challenge, we’re hoping to surpass our target and make a real difference to the seriously ill children and their families who are helped by the charity.”
