We enable children and young people with serious or life-limiting conditions from disadvantaged backgrounds to feel the long-term impact of having a dream fulfilled. We are passionate about empowering and supporting those who might not even consider having a dream come true. More info

What is a Dream?

A dream offers hope for the future. It builds strength and resilience to fight another day. It helps stop a feeling of isolation. It provides something to make everyday life more bearable. Above all it inspires confidence, a sense of wellbeing and provides treasured family memories that last long after the dream has been granted. More info



Who we support

We make dreams come true for children and young people with life-limiting and serious illnesses living in the UK’s most disadvantaged communities as we believe that every child has the fundamental right to dream. More info
