    Thousands of children and young people are living across the UK with serious health needs. Many spend months, even years in hospital because there is no support enabling them to leave. WellChild exists to give them the best chance to thrive – properly supported at home, with their families.
  • Brief history

    Kidney was the original name of WellChild when it was set up in 1977 to fund kidney disease research. Over the years, we became Children Nationwide Medical Research Foundation to support all areas of paediatric research; becoming WellChild in 2003 to better reflect the broadening remit of our work.
