From 7 days to 18 years, at DCW we want to help all children and young people feel safe, cared for and as happy as can be.
You can support DCW and help us make it a better experience for everyone.
Every day young people need the hospital’s help, it can be a quick visit, a short stay or it can be weeks and months of treatment. For some young people, with more complex difficulties, they have to visit DCW for a very long time which means the ward becomes a huge part of their lives.
The hospital can feel lonely, scary, big, and impersonal. It can feel like your whole world is being put on hold. It can take you away from things that make you feel safe. Even adults feel this way when they come into hospital.
Donations can help to buy new equipment or toys and sometimes, when a child is in hospital for a very long time, we use donations to help support families who are finding it really difficult.
