Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity
Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity funds enhanced equipment and services at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow to ensure that young patients receive the best possible care and experience.
From the latest medical equipment and research to family support services and innovative play programmes, the projects they fund aim to enhance the care of the 173,000 babies, children and young people treated each year at the hospital.
Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland
An organisation created by parents; for parents and their children. Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland was founded in 1965 (then known as Scottish Spina Bifida Association) by a small group of enthusiastic parents who each had a child with spina bifida.
Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland seeks to increase public awareness and understanding of individuals with spina bifida and / or hydrocephalus and allied conditions. It aims to support all those affected to identify their needs and to empower them to make informed choices and decisions.
Beatson Cancer Charity
Beatson Cancer Charity is determined to beat cancer and is committed to securing significant funding to support and enhance the treatment, care and wellbeing of current, former and future cancer patients and their families.
There are three main functions of the charity:
- Fundraising and communications
- Patient and family support
Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotland
Across Scotland, over 1 million people – that’s one in five of the population – are living with the effects of serious chest and heart conditions and stroke. Chest, heart and stroke conditions account for 40% of all adult deaths in Scotland.
After a diagnosis of a chest or heart condition or a stroke, many people experience fear and isolation and struggle with the impact on their lives. Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland won’t stand for that. The care and support they deliver every day ensures everyone can live the life they want to. #NoLifeHalfLived
Emmaus Glasgow provides a home and meaningful work for up to 27 formerly homeless people. Their purpose built community offers a comfortable home, while the two shops and warehouse provide meaningful work experience and generate the funds needed to keep our community going.
