Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust

Help make children's services at Addenbrooke's amazing



THANK YOU for supporting children's services at Addenbrooke's.


With YOUR help we want to ensure that EVERY child experiences the best possible outcome. With your help, we will be able to make the hospital experience as positive and ‘normal’ as it can be - whether by improving surgical and diagnostic tools to help children recover better, providing specialist play and music therapy, or offering therapeutic support to the whole family when they need it most. 


With the help of our generous supporters, we have already achieved so much for children at the hospital. YOU have helped fund:

  • The refurbishment of the Paediatric Day Unit which cares for over 6,000 children with cancer and haematological cancer every year
  • An MRI Compatible Incubator to provide excellent quality MRI scans for critically ill babies
  • A new, innovative Cancer Care Coordinator post to enhance the quality of care given to children with cancer
  • Play therapy to make hospital a less scary place for our younger patients
  • Innovative kit to help babies breathe in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
  • Sensory units to help provide a calming environment for children


But we can't stop there. We still need your help to fund:

  • An additional incubator to safely transfer critically ill babies to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
  • A Family Therapist to help support families in the face of serious illness and loss
  • An additional Nursery Nurse to support children with cancer


Will YOU help?
