Children's Health Scotland
The health and wellbeing of children and young people lies at the heart of our work. Founded in 1961 as Mother Care for Children in Hospital, Children’s Health Scotland has grown to become the leading children’s health charity in Scotland. We deliver health and wellbeing services directly to children and young people and we are the only charity dedicated to informing, promoting, and campaigning on behalf of the needs and rights of all children and young people with health conditions. We provide expertise and information to children and young people, families, carers, educators, and health professionals and are a national voice for health-related issues relating to children and young people. Our charity is also a champion for health-related play in hospital, in the community or at home. More than just a chance to have fun, play is serious business when it comes to a child’s health and health-related play can help children physically, mentally, and emotionally.
