Your donation will transform healthcare for children and young people.

With your help we want to ensure that every child experiences the best possible care. We want to make the hospital experience as positive and worry free as it can be – whether by providing specialist play and music therapy, improving surgical and diagnostic tools to help children recover better, or offering therapeutic support to the whole family when they need it most. To do this and more, we are planning to build a new, state-of-the-art dedicated children’s hospital.

Over the next few years, we will be fundraising to build the new Cambridge Children’s Hospital. It will be the first dedicated children’s hospital in the eastern region. Cambridge Children’s Hospital will be situated on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and will provide a whole new way of caring for children and young people, integrating mental and physical healthcare and having a life-changing impact on children regionally, nationally and globally.

Exceptional care will be underpinned by world-leading research from the University of Cambridge, with a 5,000sqm research institute embedded in the hospital, bringing together clinical and academic excellence.

The Research Institute will integrate cutting-edge treatments and technology to not just treat diseases, but prevent them completely.

The Government has committed £100 million to the pioneering project, and ACT, together with Head to Toe charity and the University of Cambridge announced a campaign in 2021 to raise a further £100 million in philanthropy and fundraising to make our vision a reality.
