About Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity

Roald Dahl's Marvellous Childrens Charity

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.

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.
