Tree of Hope
Tree of Hope is a registered UK charity that has been set up to help support sick or disabled children and their families in the UK and Ireland by providing and assisting in the provision of grants to enable them to obtain medical surgery, treatment, therapies and equipment that would not otherwise be available.
Many of these children have long-term medical needs and may require surgery, on-going therapy and equipment to help improve their quality of life and help them reach their maximum potential.
There are currently 800,000 disabled children living in the UK. With our health service under ever-increasing strain, many families wishing to gain access to life enhancing procedures and treatment for their children can be left floundering due to budgetary constraints. Tree of Hope believes EVERY child afflicted with illness or living with disability should have the opportunity to benefit from the multitude of interventions that exist to improve young lives within our health services.
Fundraising is one way to help cover these costs, but it can be an overwhelming task. This is where Tree of Hope can help families achieve their fundraising goals by offering guidance on how to organise and run a fundraising campaign with step-by-step instructions to create a Just Giving page.
With the guidance and approval of the medical practitioners in the UK’s health care services, Tree of Hope will fund grants for medical treatment and therapy within the private sector of medicine in the UK and Ireland. They will also fund surgery and treatment by medical specialists abroad, where the specific knowledge and facilities are available, in order to treat children as quickly as possible.
The process starts with a telephone or email application from the parent/carer/guardian of the child in need of assistance.
