Make a gift to Sparks and change a child’s life

1 in 30 children are born in the UK with a condition that may affect them for life. Sparks raises money to fund pioneering children’s medical research to improve children’s health and change children’s lives.

We need your help today to make a difference now and in the future. Will you send us a gift?

Every child matters – that’s why we support research into any medical condition affecting children’s health, from rare diseases to the most common illnesses.

Each year, the brightest medical minds bring innovative and exciting ideas to us: the preventions, treatments and cures of the future that will have both local and global impact.

We need your support to ensure that these life-changing ideas don’t go unfunded. You can do something amazing and transform children’s lives for generations to come.

Donate today, and you’ll be helping children like Oscar, who was deprived of oxygen at birth and was at a significant risk of severe disability or death. He received an innovative combination cooling treatment as part of a Sparks-funded research programme led by Prof Marianne Thoresen and now Oscar is a healthy 4 year old.



Dave, Oscar’s dad says, “there are no words to describe just how amazing the work that Marianne and her research team do. They change the lives of brain injured children and their families. They have given us our son back. They have reduced the chance of him suffering from a disability and given him the opportunity to reach his full potential.”
