Description

Crosshouse Children’s Fund is held by Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity which raises funds to ensure that patients and their families receive the best possible care and experience in hospital – including enhanced medical equipment, innovative play programmes, family support services and ground breaking paediatric research. Since 2001, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity has invested more than £30million in enhancements to Glasgow’s Royal Hospital for Children, Specialist Children’s Services for children with mental health conditions and long term illnesses, and the neonatal units at the Princess Royal Maternity and Royal Alexandra hospitals
Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity has established Crosshouse Children’s Fund to support children from Ayrshire and Arran in hospital.

No matter how much time you have to spare, we welcome volunteers from all walks of life and need volunteer support at fundraising events and activities across Ayrshire and Arran.
From bucket collections to bagpacks, cheer squads to collection can collectors - there are lots of fun and easy ways to give your time to support Crosshouse Children's Fund!

Organisation aims and objectives

The fund aims to enhance hospital experiences for patients by providing enhanced equipment and support services that can help to alleviate the worries of a hospital visit. Each year more than 25,000 babies, children and young people are treated at University Hospital Crosshouse, and the Ayrshire Maternity and Neonatal Units. With the help of communities across Ayrshire and Arran, Crosshouse Children's Fund aims to raise funds to help these youngsters and their families have the best possible hospital experiences. In establishing the fund, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity is expanding its reach to support children in hospital across the West of Scotland. To date the charity has already invested more than £30 million in to Glasgow’s Royal Hospital for Children.
