About us

Roald Dahl believed in the importance of children and in helping them overcome life's toughest challenges. He was one of the world’s most imaginative and loved storytellers and he left a marvellous legacy - Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity.

Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity provides specialist nurses and support to seriously ill children.

Today, there are currently 78 Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses caring for over 21,000 seriously ill children across the UK.

Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses work directly with the child and family, supporting them in the community and within the hospital setting. They support children and families affected by conditions which do not receive as much funding as others, including Rare Diseases, Sickle Cell Anaemia, Neuro-Muscular Conditions and Epilepsy.

We are committed to establishing more Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses across the UK.
