World Dream Day falls every year on 25th September. Why? Because, whoever you are, wherever you come from – we all have something in common. We ALL have dreams, goals, and aspirations. However, some people have many barriers that stand in the way of making their dreams come true. For example, living in areas of high deprivation and living with a disability, serious illness, or life-limiting condition.   

At Dreams Come True our mission is to turn dreams into a reality for every child who needs our attention and that the moments of magic we create have a lasting impact for children and their families.   

Why support us on World Dreams Day? 

When a child has additional needs, life is challenging, even for families with strong support systems. Ongoing hospital visits, the inability to join in activities with friends and even physical pain can impact the magic of childhood.   

Right now, there are thousands of children who need our support and with the current cost of living crisis, the families we work with are facing the reality of not being able to afford the basics, let alone adapted beds and technology or garden equipment for their child with additional needs.   

For the children we work with, a dream coming true can have a significantly positive long-term impact on their lives.

Can you join us and support our appeal?

This is sobering news and means that the shocking figures of 3.9 million children experiencing poverty* are yet to rise exponentially.  

Dreams Come True is the only national wish granting charity that solely supports children in the highest areas of deprivation in the UK, who are living with a disability, a serious illness, or a life-limiting condition. Our work supporting children and young people is needed more than ever.  

Donate this World Dreams Day 

On average a dream costs over £2,000 to deliver. This year alone we are aiming to deliver almost 140 dreams. 

Please donate £5 to help us ensure that we can make the Dreams Come True for the children that really need our attention.
