WHAT THEY DO


The Sick Kids Friends Foundation (SKFF) support & enrich the work done by the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Edinburgh (The Sick Kids) & other children’s healthcare support service across the southeast of Scotland and beyond.

They want every single one of the 100,000 children who visit the Hospital every year & those being supported in their local communities to receive the absolute best levels of care.

They does this by funding the following:

  • Comforts, distractions and enhanced facilities for children and their families (this can include portable DVD players for the children so they can be distracted & made to feel calmer)
  • The very latest medical equipment and research (this included a £550,000 Gamma Camera, which will help to deliver more accurate diagnostic testing)
  • Family support and play services (this can include accomodation for parents who want to be with their kids day & night)

Since 1992 The Sick Kids Friends Foundation have contributed over £10 million to support children & their families using healthcare services at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, and throughout NHS Lothian area.
