Aim of The Childrens Foundation

The Children’s Foundation was set up as a children’s charity in 1990 in Newcastle upon Tyne. At that period in time the North East region had the worst child health levels in the country, therefore the Children’s Foundation charity was established to improve the health and wellbeing of the children and young people affected. 25 years have passed and we continue to cover the North East and North Cumbria, focusing on the relief of distress, disability and disadvantage.

We are a North East Children’s charity focused on making the health and well-being  of children and young people in the North East & North Cumbria the best in the country.

* The promotion and support of research into the causes and effective treatment/alleviation of diseases, medical conditions and disabilities, both physical and mental, affecting children and young people.

We intend to meet these objectives through the following aims:
