  • Mission:
  • Caudwell Children provide family support services, equipment, treatment and therapies for disabled children and their families across the UK. We also run our Enable Sport programme for talented disabled athletes and our Destination Dreams holiday for children fighting life threatening conditions.
    Our goals are;
    To change the futures of all disabled children by providing access to the equipment, therapies, services and treatments they need
    To increase awareness and understanding of the needs of disabled children across the UK
    To enable disabled children to lead an active and independent life, reaching their full potential
    To enable extraordinary childre

    Passionate, positive and practical, we are motivated to improve the lives of the estimated 770,000 disabled children living in the UK, starting with the 400,000 living in or on the margins of poverty.

  • Overview:
  • Caudwell Children work with families with children aged from birth until their 19th birthday.

    Our vision is a world where all children's needs are met throughout childhood; where disabled children and their families have the right to choice, opportunity, dignity and understanding.

    We are passionate about improving the health of children and ensuring every family has access to the equipment, services and treatments they require.
    In 2012 we officially launched our seven Core Services; devised after a decade of learning about the needs of families with disabled children and designed to fill the gap left by statutory services and other charities.

    Driven from the Chief Executive and the Board of Trustees, we remain passionate about making a real difference to the lives of individual disabled children.

    What makes us special:
    We don't believe in waiting lists for children
    We treat families and their children as individuals
    We're a national charity with a local heart
    Our management and running costs are covered by a kind benefactor so that donations go directly to help disabled children in need
    Non-condition specific, we have supported children with over 500 different medical conditions and help children up until their 19th birthday.

    We recognise that childhood is a critical and vulnerable stage when health inequalities can have effects that last throughout life. We are there at every step of this new, challenging and often lonely journey; from birth, or diagnosis, in an emergency, or at a time of crisis.

    Focused on supporting those families that need our help the most, applicants are means tested and must have a gross household income of less than £45,000 to be eligible

  • History:
  • To date Caudwell Children has provided services worth over £25million to thousands of children with over 500 different medical conditions. The Charity is committed to changing the lives of children by providing specialist equipment, treatment and therapy as well as its annual ‘Destination Dreams’ holiday for families coping with a child’s terminal illness and their Family Support services.

    Caudwell Children was registered in March 2000 and is widely recognised as one of the country’s fastest growing children’s charities. Since its inception the charity has doubled every pound raised, achieved through supplier partnerships, which means every pound donated works even harder.

    The Charity was founded by entrepreneur, John Caudwell, whose vision was to create a sustainable children’s charity that offered benefactors’ transparency and peace of mind that 100% of their donation was being used to directly change children’s lives.

    By donating the cost of the Charity’s annual management and administration overheads, John has guaranteed an efficient way for individuals and businesses to change the lives of thousands of sick and disabled children living in the UK.

    John Caudwell remains the Charity’s largest benefactor and sits as Chairman of the Board of Trustees.

    The Charity’s ambassadors include Hollywood actress and author, Joan Collins, actress Elizabeth Hurley, Rod and Penny Stewart, Peter Andre, Bruce Forsyth and singer, Robbie Williams. The late Boyzone singer, Stephen Gately, was also a Goodwill Ambassador for the Charity.
