Dreams & Wishes is a charity dedicated to helping seriously ill children by making their dreams and wishes come true. Since we began in 2011, we have been working with families across the UK, providing vital support throughout the child’s illness as well as helping to build happy memories by granting lifelong wishes.
Battling a life-threatening illness is heart-breaking for both a child and their support network and can often mean countless hospital stays, painful treatments and a loss of a ‘childhood’, something which most children take for granted.
Dreams & Wishes provide support for children and their families as well as ensuring that families are still able to make wonderful and long-lasting memories.
We understand that every child is unique with their own dreams and wishes, so it is our aim to make sure that every child we work with is able to fulfil their dream. Some children want to meet their favourite TV stars, fly in a helicopter, visit Legoland or to just have their own playhouse. No matter how big or small a child’s dream is, we are committed to making sure it comes true.
