Action for Sick Children have been active for 40 years. Taking into account the views of the children and young people they work with, the organisation will now be known as Children's Health Scotland.
Children's Health Scotland is the only charity in Scotland dedicated to informing, promoting and campaigning on behalf of the needs of all sick children and young people within the healthcare system.
Children and young people supported by Children's Health Scotland say they do not want to be identified by their illness or condition. The new name gives a positive message and is a better reflection of the work Children's Health Scotland do to support the health of all children and young people.
Children's Health Scotland have also launched a new website to align with the new name and brand.
