Trusts and Foundations

Grants and donations from charitable trusts and foundations play a fundamental role in funding the services we provide for babies and young children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.

Why support us

At James Hopkins Trust we help babies and young children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions, and their families, make the most of every day by offering nursing-led respite care. In order to maintain our current level of core services we need to raise in excess of £700,000 per year. With the advancement in medicine and technology, many children now have a more favourable prognosis and are living longer, albeit with numerous complex care needs, resulting in an ever-increasing demand for our services.

Financial gifts provided by charitable trusts and foundations help ensure that free respite care is available for all who need it. This type of support provides stability through the funding of our core service costs and innovation through the funding of new projects and service developments.

Ways we acknowledge your support

We are always delighted to thank our Friends, Donors and Supporters for their invaluable financial support. If requested we can acknowledge your generosity and support by featuring your name on our website and social media platforms.

Understanding the value of feedback in the joy of giving, we’ve established a comprehensive monitoring system. This system ensures we can provide detailed and current information on services funded by trusts and foundation. Our reports are tailored to your needs, incorporating statistics, case studies, photographs, financial accounts and publicity if required.

We would love to invite you to Kites Corner to meet the staff and some of the babies and young children we support. During your visit, you’ll see first-hand how your gift helps make a difference.
