Transforming lives, one wish at a time. Make-A-WIsh create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
Last year, Make-A-Wish granted life-changing wishes to more than 1,000 children and young people here in the UK. Every month, hundreds more children turn to them.
For a desperately ill child, a wish is life-changing and transformational. When a child turns to the charity, they take them on a carefully structured Wish Journey. The whole Wish Journey – from wish capture, to building anticipation to lasting memories, aids physical and emotional healing. Building resilience and helping children to better cope with their critical illness.
From capturing their One True Wish to building anticipation and creating lasting memories – a wish changes lives and Make-A Wish can’t do that without support.
Make-A-Wish UK is a charity that creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
To be eligible for a wish, a child must be aged between 3 and 17 years who are fighting a critical illness and have not had a wish from another wishgranting organisation.
