About Us

For the past 37 years, we have been supporting young patients to make their experience in children’s hospitals as comfortable as possible.

Donate now

Previously known as the Chelsea Children’s Hospital Charity, we have now re-launched as The Children’s Surgery Foundation reflecting a move to a more national scope of our work.

We help by providing support to purchase much needed medical equipment such as ventilators and monitors for the Neonatal Wards (NICU), a state-of-the-art robot for high-precision surgery, sensory equipment for a Burns Ward, a much-needed outing for burns patients and so much more.

We are delighted to announce a partnership with the British Association of Paediatric Surgeons (BAPS)

Together we are working with a shared understanding of our common interests, training in paediatric surgical skills and quality research.

Our Team

Our dedicated team guide our work and oversee the strategic development of the charity. They work without pay and do not charge for any expenses.
